My 2017 Wellington Fringe Festival Picks

The Wellington Fringe Festival starts this Friday and I am going to as many shows as I can! It’s hugely important to support your local talent, as well as people coming in from other places. Make the most of the Fringe Festival and go to as many shows as possible! I promise you won’t regret it.  If you’re not sure on exactly what shows to go to, I have put together a snazzy list of some of my favourite Fringe Fest shows:

“Ze”: Queer As Fuck!

ze-queer-as-fuck

“Catapulted by a series of unlikely experiences, Michelle/Ryan stumbles through an expanding parade of LBGTQI, etc. identities in search of a definitive sense of ze own queer pride. “Ze” (a definitive gender neutral pronoun) details the gains, losses, frustrations, and celebration implicit in the tension between being authentic, and belonging.”

“Award winning comedian, Brad Zimmerman, was recently involved in an event that showed him the darker side of humanity. He saw things he never expected to see. He felt things he never expected to feel. And all he wanted was some chicken.”
