Ticket Prices Dropped to Reflect NZ Gender Pay Gap

Ticket Prices Dropped to Reflect NZ Gender Pay Gap

Tour-Makers presents
That Bloody Woman
By Luke Di Somma & Gregory Cooper
Directed by Kip Chapman
Starring Westside's Esther Stephens as Kate Sheppard

That Bloody Woman is a highly political rock musical honouring the work of the great Kate Sheppard. The show's promoters have responded to the current political climate to make an offer that reflects New Zealand today. Tour-Makers are delighted to announce a new offer in ticketing for the show - 9.4% cheaper tickets for all those who identify as women, to reflect the gender pay gap.

Kate Sheppard didn't fight to win women the right to vote so that well over a hundred years later we'd still be fighting for equality. A gender pay gap of 9.4% is an improvement but it's not enough.

Statistics NZ has announced that this year in New Zealand, the gender pay gap sits at 9.4%, a fact undeniably relevant to this show touring at a vital time for female leaders.

That Bloody Woman presents New Zealand's greatest heroine like you've never seen her before; loud, proud and in your face. Leading the charge to win women the vote, Kate takes on the patriarchy, public opinion and even Prime Minister Richard 'King Dick' Seddon.



After a stunning debut season That Bloody Woman were invited to join 2017's Auckland Live's International Cabaret Season after the outstanding response to its debut, hailed by critics as; "a kick ass punk rock musical full of infectious tunes that is unafraid to have fun, but just as unafraid to bring intelligence and insight to this powerful and important moment in history" -
