A hilarious, semi-autobiographical one-woman show, SKIN HUNGER is a roller-coaster journey through grief, God and 'gasms. Raw, passionate, sexy and heartbreakingly funny this show is for anyone who has ever lost someone and had to find themselves - and perhaps their clitoris - again.
After the death of her husband, grief-stricken Eva, a perimenopausal woman of faith, embarks on a journey of self-discovery, spiritual awakening, and sexual empowerment. Amidst a deluge of tragic Tinder dates, self-doubt, and Catholic guilt, she finds the courage to forge a new path for her life in the chaotic aftermath. Eva discovers that there is always life after death.
Exploring the intersection of grief, faith and sexuality, SKIN HUNGER will make you laugh out loud and also move you to tears.
★★★★★ "SKIN HUNGER was absolutely glorious, and thank Hotere for being unafraid to talk about the hard stuff. Tatiana Hotere - what a show-stopping performance! I left the theatre completely speechless." - Olivia Wright, Rat World Magazine.
★★★★★ "Do yourself a favour and go see this. Watch it if you've ever lost someone you've loved, watch it if you've ever been horny. Watch it if you own a dildo, watch it if you don't, watch it if you have Catholic guilt or really any kind of guilt. Watch it if you want to be moved." - Renee Liang
★★★★★ "The script is magnificent: subtle, crafted for our pleasure - and it never becomes preachy." - Lexie Matheson, Theatreview.
