Katie Boyle in Pat Goldsack's Swingers Club and Brothel
– A national AOTNZ Tour
“a pure joy to watch” – Art Murmurs “impossible not to love” – Echoes From The Wings “utterly phenomenal . . . hilarious” – Theatreview
87-year-old Patricia Goldsack, known as Pat to her friends and lovers has toured New Zealand for the last six decades with her touring swingers club and brothel. Looking to make a dollar in her old age, and lots of new and naked friends, she explores how close two degrees is and whether we can make that separation smaller.
The show features anecdotes from Pat's chequered past, audience interaction, and all kinds of tips and tricks, delivered with a sharp grandmotherly wit and accomplished improvisational skills. Fresh from multi-award nominated performances in 2018-19, this is one old woman you don't want to miss.
