Use Your Feminine Wiles To Win Tickets To Venus and Adonis

Acclaimed Australian theatre company Bell Shakespeare make their New Zealand debut with a stunning adaptation of Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis. A must see for lovers of Shakespeare that will equally appeal to fans of cabaret and live music.

Melissa Madden Gray and Susan Prior portray the multi-faceted goddess of love through verse, conversation and song, accompanied by a live band.  In their hands, the famous poem, Shakespeare’s subversive re-working of Ovid’s original love story, is a performance piece that veers from drama to cabaret, farce to burlesque, as Venus uses every feminine wile at her disposal to try and win over an indifferent Adonis.  A hugely entertaining look at lust and love, sexual stereotypes and mythical goddesses from Australia’s innovative touring Shakespeare company.

We have two double passes to the 18 March show for a ticket competition. To be in to win, tell us what you think is the most cunning trick women use to get their own way. Enter your fantastic female 'fast ones' into the Comments section of the event page and we'll pick the lucky winners.
