“Great Bellied Women” opens in New Zealand

Don't Blink Theatre Company presents Stacey Lane’s Great Bellied Women in a double bill with Caryl Churchill’s Vinegar Tom. The show runs June 26th through June 30th at Musgrove Studio in Auckland, New Zealand. This is the first time that Lane’s work has been performed in New Zealand.  In Great Bellied Women, a new one-act comedy with an all female cast, a Renaissance midwife and her high-spirited daughter test a potential apprentice’s skills in a pretend delivery.
