Skin Hunger


Go to Show information Prepare to laugh and cry in this brilliant and utterly compelling theatre piece written and performed by Tatiana Hotere, winner of several 2022 Auckland Fringe awards including Outstanding Performance.

After the death of her husband, grief- stricken Eva – a perimenopausal woman of faith – embarks on a journey of self-discovery, spiritual awakening and sexual empowerment. Amidst a deluge of tragic tinder dates, self-doubt and Catholic guilt, she finds the courage to forge a new path for her life in the chaotic aftermath. Eva discovers there is always life after death.

Raw, passionate, sexy and heartbreakingly funny, Skin Hunger explores the intersection of grief, faith and sexuality in a brave and sensitive way. This show is for anyone who’s ever lost someone, and had to find themselves (and perhaps their clitoris) again.

After two sell out seasons at Auckland Fringe 2022 and Summer of Q 2023, this award-winning show will make you laugh out loud, and also move you to tears.

“Do yourself a favour and go see this. Watch it if you’ve ever lost someone you’ve loved, watch it if you’ve ever been horny. Watch it if you own a dildo, watch it if you don’t, watch it if you have Catholic guilt or really any kind of guilt. Watch it if you want to be moved.” Renee Liang – RNZ
