Femme Natale at BATS Theatre 23rd-26th May

23rd-26th May 8pm and 2pm matinee on 26th
Heyday Dome, BATS Theatre, Wellington
Bookings: https://bats.co.nz/whats-on/femme-natale/


Femme Natale, an entertaining take on parenting and particularly motherhood comes to BATS theatre in May. Directed by Fingal Pollock, this is a play on motherhood like no other.


“Come and share with fellow Wellingtonian mums (and a token dad), a night of skits, comedy and revelry inspired by the extraordinary experiences of motherhood. Join us to celebrate that you're surviving and thriving in the hardest job you'll ever do.”


Fingal's vision was to create an opportunity for fellow artists to vent, showcase and satirise their parenting experiences through the medium of theatre. In doing so, she has created a show that any actor parent could take part in: from rehearsals with babies to a backstage babysitter, this show allows creative mums (and the token dad) to take part in a unique show built for them. The cast in diverse in age, relationship status and experience but united in being jobbing parents. Supported by Wellington City Council and Matahiwi Wines, this is a show with an innovative and intimate nature.


Fingal herself has two young children. She also has a successful acting and directing career including working with Clown Doctors New Zealand, Little Dog Barking Theatre Company and Hens' Teeth since becoming a parent. Other cast members include multi-award winning playwright, filmmaker and actress of TV’s McPhail and Gadsby fame, April Phillips as well as Sarah Harpur, former NZ Raw comedy award winner and 2011 Best Comedy at The Dunedin Fringe and many more...
