Go to Bed Jessica! Hits Wellington

Go to Bed Jessica! Hits Wellington This Thursday 15th March

Jessica McKerlie (Gender Spanner, Glitterfist: Libertine) has been touring Gender Spanner for the past two years across Australia, the UK and New Zealand. This has seen her sharing houses, rooms, beds, beers and train carriages with characters as widely diverse as the definition of LGBTQQIAAP2S+.

Jessica’s brash, no holds barred, potent storytelling style will have audiences begging for more, then imploring her to please, for the love of god, stop, as she playfully injects humour and defiance into the room in a delightfully messy explosion of creativity.
