Woman, Refugee), Geraldine Creff (Underage Sex Work, Illegal Migrant) & Lee ah yen Faatoia (Transgender, Rent boy). WHORE is also being adapted for screen, with the first of six short films, available late October 2014.

“The play is presented by charlatan clinic and has succeeded in putting together a wonderful piece of theatre...” - Keeping up with NZ, May 2014


“Fergusson is fascinated why society thinks ‘Whore’ is a dirty word and wanted to challenge perceptions. She’s done so.” – Gay NZ, May 2014
