Lining up outside to get into the sold out Fringe Wives Club’s Glittery Clittery, the woman in front of me is grumpy. She complains to her partner, “it’s only popular because it’s got the word clitoris in it, it probably isn’t even that good.” She couldn’t be more wrong.
The Fringe Wives Club is Victoria Falconer, Tessa Waters, and Rowena Hutson and Glittery Clittery is their cult feminist disco. These veterans of the scene meet all of your expectations: they’re self-proclaimed all singing, all dancing, all fighting superstars.
As a cabaret, Glittery Clittery explores contemporary feminism and feminist issues through a number of hit songs, covering topics from the (sexist) history of pockets to feminist fuckbois, with a brief break in the middle for a name that part of the female genitalia game show. In the shadows of the recent viral Twitter fiasco, this hits home when none of the women on stage are able to correctly name a part of the vulva besides the vagina and the urethra. Not even the clitoris gets a look in!
The Fringe Wives Club are so high energy, it’s contagious. They’re masters of this craft, so talented and expressive. Glittery Clittery is so much (educational) fun, bring your friends, your boyfriend, your mum.

His latest film The Image Book is a fragmented, often overwhelming collage of images and sounds from disparate contexts.
A genre-blending thriller, drama and romance, exploring the phenomenon of catfishing from the catfish’s POV. Who You Think I Am is masterfully carried by veteran actress Juliette Binoche, who somehow manages to elicit sympathy to an unsympathetic cause.
The film could’ve very well devolved into the kind of old-man-yells-at-cloud platitudes we hear all the time about technology, but Assayas is a more deft handler of these conversations than most.
The power of theatre to realistically, yet conceptually tackle taboo topics in society is proven by local company Velvet Chase Productions in their performance of Daniella Candida’s #nofilter, a unique, expressive and emotive exploration of mental illness, its causes, its effects, and the many faces of it.
Rose Callaghan’s comedic listicle is a welcome addition to the Rhino Room’s cracking line up.
