In 1983, suffragist Kate Sheppard lead the campaign which lead to New Zealand becoming the first country in the world to grant women the vote. THAT BLOODY WOMAN (TBW) is the story of the historical (and yet still contemporary) fight for women’s equality; a story of perseverance personal sacrifice and democracy; and a story of change.
That Bloody Woman musical is written by Christchurch-born writers Luke Di Somma and Gregory Cooper and premiered at the 2015 Christchurch Arts Festival with a completely sold-out season for its fiery, fresh and funny take on Sheppard’s fight to grant women the vote.
The show has been seen by over 30,000 throughout New Zealand.
New Zealand’s smash hit rock musical That Bloody Woman is back. Our favourite daughter, suffragist, activist and cyclist Kate Sheppard is transformed from the face on the $10 note into a feminist firebrand raising hell and rocking out.
That Bloody Woman showcases New Zealand’s ceiling-shattering history and asks us to consider whether we have come as far as we would like…
Radical, riotous and bursting with wit, experience this bold sell-out musical about one of New Zealand’s greatest heroines and get ready to party like it’s 1893.
