PRESS RELEASE

Hens' Teeth at the WTF!

Circa One

March 14 -25

Yes, we’re back!

Hens’ Teeth – A Season of Women Comedians - are rising from the ashes! We perform in Circa One March 14th -25th as part of the WTF! (Women’s Theatre Festival!) that surrounds the second Hui on Women in Theatre on March 11th.

Our new season Hens’ Teeth at the WTF! will be a mixture of the old guard and new blood.

Pinky Agnew will be MC, and Maud Hornby (Dame Kate Harcourt), Cynthia Fortitude and Gertie Rallentando (Helen Moulder and Rose Beauchamp), Cooking with Condoms (Prue Langbein), and Darian Takle are some of the old favourites on every night, with new talent, providing fresh fodder to be spattered throughout the season. These include: April Phillips, Tracey Savage, Sarah Harper, Cat Zulver, Jane Keller, Helen Fletcher, Georgie Silver, Fingal Pollock, Fe Day, Margaret Austin, Ashleigh Hume, Susan Gordon, Feather Unsure, Cathie Sheat, Carrie Green, and the Crows Feet Dance Collective Hens’ Teeth broke box-office records from when they first appeared at Circa Theatre at Xmas 1988, until their last show at the 2001 Arts Festival. The secret of the widespread popularity of Hens' Teeth was simple: it is Women Being Funny. And not only are these women funny, but they are funny about things that are part of the fabric of most women's lives. The only major rule for the content of Hens' Teeth is that we don't laugh at the expense of men, or any other minorities.

WHAT THE CRITICS HAVE SAID

"Hens Teeth ... had them laughing until the tears rolled." DOMINION

"... the best laughter with the most thought behind it that I have enjoyed for years." SUNDAY TIMES

"I can't remember when I last laughed so loudly and for so long!" AGENDA

"... terribly funny." BROADSHEET

"... brilliantly trod the giddy comic knife-edge of taboo, fantasy and stunningly accurate observation.”

THE STAGE, LONDON

"We have waited too long . . . for Hens' Teeth." THE NEW ZEALAND HERALD

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
