The Fringe, 26-32 Allen St

We're all some kind of arsebiscuit. The trick is how to be more biscuit and less arse. What price friendship, when revolution beckons? What price joy & compassion? And what about the menz?  In her debut solo show for the NZ International Comedy Festival, multi award winning international performer Zehra is here in Aotearoa doing what she does best; a goulash of storytelling and political commentary, peppered with absurdity, dark humour and personal context.
