The Pink Hammer by Michele Amas

26th to 29th August

Directed by Hugh Neill

“Join Maggie Taylor as she guides you through basic carpentry skills and chisels away at
the stereotype that has kept women out of the tool box for so long.”
So reads the flyer for The Pink Hammer Workshop, but when Annabel, Helen, Louise and
Siobhan turn up, looking forward to learning carpentry skills from a pioneering, female
furniture maker, they soon discover their tutor has disappeared – along with their pre-
paid fees. They find Maggie’s husband instead; a disgruntled out-of-work builder, who
knows nothing about the course, even less about Girl Power and is not impressed to find
four sheilas amongst his claw hammers.
Not the sort of women to back down from a challenge, the group convince Woody to
teach them the tricks of the trade in this hilarious and heart-warming Kiwi comedy.

Five unhappy people in a shed full of tools. What could possibly go wrong?
‘A damn good play. Very funny.’ – Roger Hall
“The Pink Hammer is Kiwi comedy at its best. It’s quirky as all hell; it’s very funny; it
provides phenomenally strong roles for four women – and one guy! – but more than
anything else, these are recognisable New Zealanders, which is why this is an outstanding
play to produce.”
– Artistic Director, Ross Gumbley, The Court Theatre.
