Naked Girls Reading NZ is so excited to be back in Auckland, we’re practically tearing our clothes off!
This year, everyone’s favourite nude and rude literary show is stripping off for the supercity. A beloved cult cabaret, Naked Girls will be bringing not one but FOUR delicious original editions to the infamous Caluzzi Cabaret on K Road in 2019. We’ve gathered Auckland’s finest whip-smart sluts and hussies to read a dizzying variety of literature from Aotearoa and abroad. It’s an outrageous and innovative theatre experience not to be missed.
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.
Hosted, as always, by the adorable Hugo Grrrl.
Our 2019 Auckland shows are!

Ahoy, adventurers! Get ready to burn your bras, brandish your breakthroughs and blast off for this scandalous literary expedition.

Naked Boys Reading - 7.30pm, Thursday 1st August 2019.
Boys! In the buff! With books! Oh my! After nearly three years of Naked Girls Reading in NZ, we figured it's about time the boys had a crack. (Or, rather, showed their cracks.) This time completely naked men will be reading literature aloud onstage: a celebration of naked bodies, good storytelling, and wholesome masculinity. Catch our cast of slutty hunks baring it all for one night only.
The Occult Edition - 7.30pm, Thursday October 24th 2019.
Something wicked this way comes. Gather around the cauldron, coven. We’re dusting off our spell books, ripping off our robes, and solemnly swearing that we are up to no good this Halloween. This October, join our cast of jezebels, jinxes and unholy whores for an evil evening of witchcraft and bitchery; a seance of storytelling, sorcery and sisterhood.
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.
