“It’s Kinky, It’s Fun, Outrageous!” Jacqui Stanford – GayNZ.com

For a very special hour, the theatre becomes a Bondage and Discipline dungeon, and the audience a block of prospective clients as 'Mistress Dominique' shares the dirty secrets of her profession. Hilarious, sexy and surprisingly tender, Lashings of Whipped Cream is a theatrical close encounter.

“Brilliant performance complemented by direction from Geoff Pinfield. Rouge interpreted the script’s delicate mix of funny, eye-opening, and moving imagery perfectly. “
Inda Hendrikse - KeepingupWithNZ

Performed by Brazilian drag diva Rhubarb Rouge (the alter ego of performance artist Ricky Beirao), Lashings of Whipped Cream is an intimate and poignant confessional of one (wo)man's dreams and demons.
