Charlatan Clinic & LOT23 Present 'Whore' - the encore

Charlatan Clinic & LOT23 Present 'Whore' - the encore

'Whore' is a collection of stories about street sex workers in Auckland, NZ.
WATCH THE TRAILER HERE

Charlatan clinic's confronting new work, returns on 11 & 12 July due to sell-out shows and popular demand.

'Whore' delves into the lives of six characters ('Rent boy', 'Refugee', 'Illegal migrant', 'Married woman', 'Underage sex worker' and 'Transgender') played by Lee Ah Yen Faatoia, Rebecca Parr and Geraldine Creff, who have written about their experience on the charlatan clinic blog

Fergusson has met with Auckland sex workers and conducted interviews to gain insight and understanding, for the purpose of honest storytelling. She is fascinated why society think 'Whore' is a dirty word. Fergusson says "Sex work is heavily stigmatised and misunderstood in society. Hopefully my play brings truth, and challenges perception."

Lot 23 will be converted into an intimate theatre space, seating up to 80 people per show. There will be a photo gallery of the making of 'Whore', promotional footage, live mannequins, licensed bar and more.

Tickets $20 + BF from ITICKET, also available from Conch & Real Groovy
Doors open at 6pm, show at 7:30pm
Wine and platters available from 6pm

'Whore' is proudly supported and sponsored by: Lot 23, Willow Shoes, NZAF, Love Your Condom, The Makeup School, Paper Bag Princess, FiaFia Creations, Yuka & Tristan, NZPC, Speedy Rubber Stamps and Four Eyes Media.
