‘WHORE’ Hits Wellington

After the world premiere of ‘WHORE’ at Lifewise NZ Merge Café in May/June, followed by ‘The Encore’ at Lot 23 Studio in July, the successful Auckland sell-out show is now touring to BATS Wellington, performing 25-27 September, 2014.

‘WHORE’ is a collection of topical, fact-based Auckland stories; without filters. This play gives you a glimpse into street sex work and what some
people experience.

The core cast are touring to Wellington including Rebecca Parr (Married
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

‘charlatan clinic’ are proudly supported by Love Your Condom, NZAF, Paperbag Princess, Four Eyes Media NZ, Willow Shoes, Speedy Rubber Stamps & FiaFia Creations.
