Fringe Wives Club: Glittery Clittery

Fringe Wives Club: Glittery Clittery
The Furies present
Fringe Wives Club
Glittery Clittery: a conSENSUAL party

Winner: Best Cabaret, Adelaide Fringe 2018. Nominated: Best Newcomer, Melbourne Comedy Festival 2017. "A cult feminist disco not to miss” ★★★★★ (Fest). Named a Top Five Adelaide Fringe Show by the Guardian, this champagne-fuelled Australian power trio are unleashing their award-winning debut show with original songs, epic dance moves and an explosion of sequins! This ‘irresistibly energetic’ (Chortle) extravaganza is fierce, feminist and furiously funny. Starring Tessa Waters (Winner: Best Comedy Weekly, Adelaide Fringe 2017), Victoria Falconer (Time Out London's Top 10 Cabaret Stars, EastEnd Cabaret) and Rowena Hutson (Winner: Best Comedy, Melbourne Fringe 2015).

Part-explosive comedy cabaret, part-interactive club night, this sequin-covered, champagne-fuelled, cosmic feminist extravaganza is guaranteed to blow your minds and your pants! You are invited to join the all-singing, all-dancing cliterati: a not-so-secret society rising up to combat misogyny and the normalisation of oppression, armed with an empowering disco soundtrack. All are welcome at this cult feminist cosmic disco: you can have a dick, just don’t be one. 

Fierce and funny, the show is a high-energy party bursting with original live music, anarchic audience games, DIY glamour + activism (a.k.a. #glamtivism), sharp-witted observations and of course, ridiculously epic dance moves. But it is also an uncompromising call-to-arms; brandishing the weapons of entertainment, their songs and stories undermine the fear that indoctrinates bigotry, sexism and homophobia, pinpoints the lack of education that continues to shroud the female body, and celebrates sexuality in all of its beautiful, chaotic forms.

Ultimately, the soul of the show lies in the camaraderie between the three performers Tessa Waters, Rowena Hutson and Victoria Falconer; an alliance cemented (as their name suggests) over espresso martinis in many artist bars around the festival world, the women supported each other whilst performing their individual award-winning shows over the past few years. Join the Wives as they clitterbomb the patriarchy with the full force of their combined, unquestionable talent.
"Feminist comedy hits its peak. This show knocks it out of the park. It is a raunchy, sassy, feminist call to arms.”
