THEM FATALE - Presented by TAHI Festival 2021
Event type: 
Comedy, Festival, Theatre
Tickets from $18
BATS Theatre
1 Kent Terrace


UPDATE: Due to Auckland Level 3 restrictions James Penwarden is no longer able to attend TAHI Festival in person. To replace this live performance of Them Fatale - a digital version will be available for 48 hours from 8.30pm, Thurs 21 October and tickets are now pay-what-you-can from $5-$25.   All current ticket holders will be notified of the changes and sent the link. 


A warm and welcoming night out for gays, theys, and comedy-loving baes Them Fatale is a safe space and a sexy place to be. All are welcome to come to a night of embracing real queer experience, wrapped into a tight 50-minute set. 


Them Fatale directly addresses a few cis-het normative elephants in the room: Why is this non-binary person not altering their feminine body? How did a Catholic get this queer? What does bisexuality even mean if the whole concept of gender is kaput? Is this just a trend?


Penwarden premiered this show during the 2021 NZ Fringe Festival to glowing reviews, four awards nominations and one win (Adelaide Tour Ready Award).



A celebration of solo performance, TAHI is a five-day Festival 19-23 October at BATS Theatre dedicated to showcasing the finest and most engaging solo theatre from all around Aotearoa.

19-23 October 2021 | BATS Theatre, 1 Kent Tce, Wellington
