Minge is a slang word for the nether regions of a lady. Minge is a play at BATS Theatre in Wellington from 1-11 December 2010. Minge is a celebration and an interrogation of womanhood in New Zealand, as well as musical extravaganza for people of all genders. What better way is there to kick start the festive season than with some Minge?

Minge; A Complete and Authorised History of Womanhood from Birth to Death, is a show about what it means to be a young woman, the expectations, the rules and the roles one must play. Drawing on stories of themselves and women across Wellington, each night the Minge ladies will attempt to perform their version of the story of finding womanhood. Late-night cabaret meets pantomime and the traditional hero’s quest (for reference see every movie you’ve ever seen but particularly Star Wars) it features puppetry, helpful hints, a Mortal Kombat homage, dance and song.

The year-long Minge project sprung from the desire of many of Wellington’s young female theatre practitioners to make theatre by women, for women and about women. Women involved women are from four award winning theatre collectives: Binge Culture Collective, The PlayGround Collective, Three Spoon Theatre and Theatre Militia, as well as many independent theatre practitioners.

Minge is directed by Fiona McNamara, produced by Hannah Banks, and is performed by Eleanor Bishop, Erin Banks, Ally Garrett, Rose Guise, Rachel Marlow, Heleyni Pratley, Jean Sergent and Hannah Smith, with music played by Steph Cairns and Helen O'Rourke. Choreography by Brigid Costello and costumes by Josephine Hall.
