UNFAIR LADY @ PopArt Theatre
May 27 @ 8:00 pm – May 31 @ 3:30 pm
UNFAIR LADY @ PopArt Theatre | Johannesburg | Gauteng | South Africa
POPArt Productions proudly present
from the writer of The Epicene Butcher & El Blanco: Tales of the Mariachi
UNFAIR LADY 
12 hysterical new stories in a hilarious and sometimes scathing attack on the women’s magazine industry with all it’s fallacies, inconsistencies and general nonsense.
“Cringingly good. Painfully funny… a bad-ass send up of women’s magazines” – Lauren Beukes
“This stunning little number from POPArt trawls the very fertile grounds of women’s magazines to create a riotous show that had me wincing and laughing hysterically from the Ed’s Letter to the Last Word. Hayleigh Evans and Rachael Neary are excellent in this rapid-fire satire”–  Siobahn Cassidy
“Overall, the piece does not fail to entertain. And considering that this particular audience was comprised of locals, foreigners, theatre practitioners, and even the odd drunk—all of whom were in equal fits of laughter throughout—it’s safe to say that ‘Unfair Lady’ casts a wide, relatable net with its content, neatly packaged in a timely and ever relevant production” – Dave Mann, Artslink
