Ladies, hammer and workshop humour

LAUGHING: Rehearsals are well underway for upcoming show The Pink Hammer. Photo supplied.

Grab your gal pals and make sure you get yourself along to the Howick Little Theatre for ‘The Pink Hammer’, directed by Patricia Wichman.

The upcoming Kiwi comedy is based on the lives of four very different women who each answer a flyer for The Pink Hammer Workshop, which is a ladies-only woodwork class.

Expecting empowerment and sisterhood, they turn up and instead find that the tutor Maggie, who was advertised on the promo flyer, has gone a little AWOL!

Taking her place is husband Woody, who isn’t a fan of hosting a bunch of crazy women in his workshop, but as it turns out, he may not have a choice in the matter.

It’s a production guaranteed to give viewers a laugh or two, as well as a poignant reminder of the unpredictability of life.

Ms Wichman has been directing since 2011 and this will be her first show performed at the Howick Little Theatre.

She received first place in Acting at the National round of the World Championship of Performing Arts in 2010, and secured a place representing New Zealand in the International round held in Los Angeles.

The production runs from February 25 to March 18 with both evening and matinee sessions available.
