The Pink Hammer

10 Sep 2019 (Tue) - 5 Oct 2019 (Sat)

Circa Theatre, 1 Taranaki St, Wellington

Women in the Man-Cave!
“Join Maggie Taylor as she guides you through basic carpentry skills and chisels away at the stereotype that has kept women out of the tool box for so long.”

So reads the flyer for The Pink Hammer Workshop, but when four strangers turn up for their first lesson they soon discover their tutor has disappeared—along with their pre-paid fees. No one is pleased, least of all Maggie’s husband, who knows nothing about the course and even less about GirlPower. For him, empowerment is something you plug into a wall socket.

Five unhappy people in a shed full of tools. What could possibly go wrong?

"A damn good play. Very funny." - Roger Hall

"If you’re looking for a great night out, The Pink Hammer hits the nail on the head!" - Theatreview

By presenting our visitors with different frames through which they can view our natural surroundings we hope to spark passion for conservation.

A percentage of all sales from this exhibition will be going towards our rehabilitation of native flora and fauna around the outskirts of Tapu te Ranga Marae in Island Bay, Wellington. This is following a devastating fire earlier this year, in doing so we help to support our local mana whenua whilst aiding in the conservation of our wildlife.
