There are lovely reviews on 3news.co.nz and Stuff.co.nz on The Vagina Monologues, in particular, they mention both Beth Allen’s and Antonia Prebble’s performance in the production.
Here’s what 3news.co.nz said about Antonia Prebble:
With sass and spunk Antonia Prebble delivered a great monologue on the angry vagina. She listed her character’s reasons and summed up that a more vagina-friendly world would eliminate tampons, g-strings and the chilling unpleasantness of visits to the gynaecologist.
And on Beth Allen:
Beth Allen deftly portrayed pain, confusion and panic during one of her monologues when her character feared she’d lost her clitoris. There was a happy ending to the tale however and again Allen captured the elation and joy of her character’s freedom and empowerment.
Gabrielle Henderson, Jodie Rimmer and Rachel Nash are also mentioned in the review as they feature in the same ‘shift’ as Beth and Antonia in The Vagina Monologues.
The Stuff.co.nz review said the following: “Last night I was lucky enough to stumble upon Brooke from Shortland Street (Beth Allen) with the bonus of Loretta from Outrageous Fortune (Antonia Prebble). Both were very engaging, as were the other ladies who joined them – Gabrielle Henderson, Rachel Nash and Jodie Rimmer”.
