DescriptionHow do women survive in a man’s world? Allow award-winning duo, Alice Tovey and Ned Dixon to mansplain as they re-write the man-ual with their razor-sharp show, Mansplaining.
“Alice Tovey’s insightful musical comedy skewers gender expectations” (The Age), taking audiences on a journey of masculinity, misogyny and the millennial man.
Original songs such as ‘Mansplaination’ and ‘I’m Not Racist…I Just Say Racist Things’ are layered in meaning and hilarious in execution. A mixed media presentation of music, voice, kazoos, and Destiny’s Child sock puppets, Mansplaining is a “confident, proud and bright” (Herald Sun) production that embodies the “feminist, political and brilliantly cynical” (The Australian) style Tovey and Dixon are renowned for.
"Humour for the thinking person wrapped up in masterful music, witty repartee, and some self-deprecating insight." ★★★★★ - Weekend Notes
