Fears, fantasies and fetishes feature in this fun romp behind the scenes at a less than ordinary girls night. Come be a fly on the wall!
“The laughs come thick and fast in Six Inches performed with such humour and verve. So, is this a Bridget Jones in Jozi? Not quite. These gals are funnier and smarter.”
– Alexander Matthews
“A raw and unapologetically comedic piece”
– Khanyisa Sigwanda
“A really well executed production. These women wow their audience with a thoroughly impressive and totally relatable piece. The atmosphere between them and their audience was entirely unique; I’ve never experienced anything quite like the intimacy they managed to cultivate. Well worth it”
– Lee-Ann Knowles
