Commissioned by the Suffrage Centenary Trust in 1993, Women Like Us celebrates the little-documented history of women in New Zealand politics. It was first performed at the Globe Theatre, Dunedin in 1993 and then at Taki Rua Theatre, Wellington during the 1994 Fringe Festival. It is a two act play for three actors, who play more than 25 characters. It's funny, too.
"... a powerful play. As a debut full-length production it
represented an achievement little short of staggering." The Listener
"...crisp and challenging, sprinkled with moments of hilarity." City Voice
A contemporary version called The Fifty Percent Party is also available.
