The ‘Virgin’ and the ‘Whore’. Two waitresses prepare themselves for another nauseating night on the battlefields of Horrifying Hospitalica! Armed with toothpick, their razor-sharp wit, and ripe, suck-able tits, they don their aprons, hoist their fishnets and limber up to perform In Whorefish Bloomers! An adaptation of Pam-Grant and Stannard's underground 1980s feminist ‘cabaret’. Two young Cape Town actresses take on the patriarchy one tit-bit at a time in this collection of pro-femme episodes stuffed with humour, word play, cheesy dance moves, a sprinkle of song and a drizzle of darkness. Further Info: Nominated for Best Production and Best Creative (Directing) Awards at the Cape Town Fringe and back after a sold out run in Johannesburg, don’t miss you last chance to see this high-energy, feminist comedy.
