Review: Laughter, joy and despair with socio-political depth

Jorge Morales for Theatreview

· Review,NZ Fringe

"HarleQueen threads stories and experiences through two major dimensions: the personal journey of Abby Howells and the history of salient women in the performing arts....

There is no shortage of laughs as we empathise with the experiences. We celebrate victories, big and small, and we pleasurably and willingly identify with equally genuine and sincere moments of despair, anger and frustration...

... Reaching beyond simplistic recognition, Abby’s performance goes much deeper to dissect the role of women in the various performing arts. All humour aside, there is always an ongoing social and political discussion that underlies the joy and despair we are taken through. "
