STUPID BITCH wants a puppy : Dunedin Fringe Festival

STUPID BITCH wants a puppy

Come on... we all know one - you've met one, you've probably called someone one ... maybe you are one? STUPID BITCH - light, dark, edgy comedy.

STUPID BITCH WANTS A PUPPY is a mixed-media solo show with multiple characters. It represents a developing body of original work by Claire inspired by the sheer frustration of hitting the late forties and being relegated to the Death Star for ageing actresses. To be an older actress is a type of resistance, your very existence onstage is an act of rebellion.

Mixing absurdist comedy with drama, STUPID BITCH WANTS A PUPPY looks at subtleties and nuances in women to whom labels of any kind are given. Always seeking to push the boundaries of performance, Claire sees this project as an opportunity to further challenge viewpoints of contemporary women and seeks to develop and strengthen her voice as an emerging theatre writer.

John Smythe (Theatreview) says “Stupid Bitch is theatre at its best.” “The characters are edgy, the use of props is clever and effective, and the storytelling is outstanding.”

Claire was nominated for Outstanding Performer in STUPID BITCH's first incarnation in both the Dunedin and Wellington Fringe Festivals, 2017.
