Commissioned by the Suffrage Centenary Trust in 1993, this play celebrates the little-documented history of women in New Zealand politics. 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.
