New Zealand’s sexiest and most successful comedy of all time is about to get its gear off again. A hilarious new production of Ladies Night promises to be this year’s funniest night out.

The 1987 comedy play is about a group of unemployed Kiwi blokes who develop a male strip show to make some extra cash. A spur-of-the-moment idea rapidly becomes a reality as the venue is booked and the seats are sold. With the terrifying prospect of actually having to strip in front of the public Craig, Barry, Norm, Wes and Gavin set about transforming themselves from beer belly to six pack.

Ladies Night has been translated into 16 languages and remains New Zealand’s most commercially successful play of all time. After eight sell-out tours of Britain, it went on to win The Molière Prize, France’s premiere theatre award for comedy, in 2001.

Roll over Magic Mike, the Kiwis got their kit off first.
