Glittery Crittery

Feminist comedy hits its peak with Glittery Clittery: a conSENSUAL Party. Fringe Wives Club take on bitingly personal issues with both conviction and warmth. The trio, comprising Tessa Waters, Rowena Hutson and Victoria Falconer-Pritchard, are awe-inspiring masters of physical, storytelling and musical comedy respectively. They are as passionate as they are entertaining about the hairy issues of anatomy, fake allies and decorative flaps.

This show knocks it out of the park. It is a raunchy, sassy, feminist call to arms. Falconer-Pritchard's provocative exuberance balances Hutson's earnestness and Waters' audacious charm. Glittery Clittery is deliberately confronting at points, and the audience are welcome to leave at any time as the performers challenge social boundaries, the patriarchy and anatomical knowledge. The songs are brutally and hilariously relatable, the outfits are sequinned glory, and the anger is in the right place. This is a cult feminist disco not to miss.
