Raising hell in a red-hot rock opera.

Kiwi songbird Esther Stephens plays Kate Sheppard as she takes on the patriarchy, public opinion and even Prime Minister Richard 'King Dick' Seddon.  The kick-ass band by her side will get your adrenaline pumping as they bring you catchy and melodic tunes.  

Radical, riotous and bursting with wit, experience this bold sell-out musical about one of New Zealand's greatest heroines and get ready to party like it's 1893.
