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 - there is always life after death.
Raw, passionate, sexy and heartbreakingly funny, Skin Hunger explores the intersection of grief, faith and sexuality in a brave and sensitive way. This show is for anyone who's ever lost someone, and had to find themselves (and perhaps their clitoris) again.
Returning after a sell-out season at Auckland Fringe Festival, the award-winning show will make you laugh out loud and also move you to tears.
"Skin Hunger was absolutely glorious, and I thank Hotere for being unafraid to talk about the hard stuff. " Olivia Wright - Rat World Magazine
"Some of the funniest dating interactions you've seen on a stage." Andrew Whiteside
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
