Sharpen your knives, cock your glocks and prepare for the veritable murder spree that is Naked Girls Reading: The Crime & Punishment Edition! Drugs! Sex! Violence! Crooks, cartels, and cannibals. We’ll have you screaming blue bloody murder for this evening of literary illegality.
Naked Girls Reading is exactly what is sounds like - completely naked women reading literature aloud. It's a sexy book club, a sapphic slumber party, a sumptuous and scandalous event sure to arouse, educate and entertain all at once. Come along to experience the ancient and beautiful art of storytelling - and also, you know, boobs.
This month’s edition starring:
- Rachel Rouge: cabaret queen.
- Sabrina Martin: theatre pixie.
- Kate the tongue-tied poet: never lost for words.
Hosted by the adorable Hugo Grrrl: Drag King.
These unclad, clever ladies have picked their favourite bits of iconic crooked literature to recite for you. Expect excerpts of everything criminal - from Sherlock Holmes to Dostoyevsky, from Steig Larsson to Aileen Wuornos, from David Bain to chewing gum in Singapore. We’ll be sauntering through the literary landscape of all things immoral in an evening. It’s a night not to be missed.
And don’t forget to try our special Naked Girls drink deal - ‘The Greasy Gavel’. (It’s a life sentence!)
$20 on Eventfinda
$25 on the door
and $30 VIP - front row seats, at a table with a complimentary glass of bubbles. (Perfect for those who might like to sketch the girls throughout the night. Or those who just want to get in the proverbial 'splash zone'.)
The main event will be followed by cocktails and conversation - so stick around, chat to the cast and perhaps do some reading of your own.
And remember, you can’t spell ‘literature’ without ‘t’ and ‘a’!
Please note that latecomers will not be admitted.
And it's not just for the ladies! Our events are open to everyone, from all walks of life, of all genders, all sexualities, all everything. Come along.
