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.”
