Following their sell-out tour of the South Island earlier this year, the music/theatre/comedy show ‘Sons of a Bitch & Mel Parsons’ will be gracing woolshed stages throughout the North Island this October to November and will be performing various dates in the Wairarapa.
The show is in two halves, kicking off with award-winning folk/country artist Mel Parsons, whose razor sharp wit and deft hand on the guitar has made her a favourite with audiences all around the country.
Following Mel’s set is a hilarious new show featuring a swag of delightful and disgusting dog characters. ‘Sons of a Bitch’ is the creation of comedians Amelia Dunbar and Emma Newborn, whose previous show ‘The Bitches’ Box’ was a hit with audiences from Edendale to Edinburgh, from wool sheds to glittering festivals worldwide.
Travelling by trusty horse truck (and carting a bar, seating, stage curtain, props, full production equipment and crew along for the ride) the talented trio will capture audiences once reserved for the likes of the Topp Twins, Fred Dagg, and Murray Ball, transforming working woolsheds throughout heartland New Zealand into real-life show spaces for an unforgettable night in the country.
Each show is preceded by a fundraising BBQ run by the local school or community group; a cash bar serving beer and wines will also be open throughout the evening. The woolshed tour has become a highlight on the social calendar for rural New Zealanders - an unmissable night in the country. “A world-class, quintessentially Kiwi show full of heart and humour… it’s rural but not only for country folk by any means. Do NOT miss it.” (Theatreview) www.melparsons.com or www.bitchesbox.co.nz
