7 to 17 February 2018

Three women, one “hard” topic, strictly for adults only, written by Kristy Suttner.

Starring Bongile G Lecoge-Zulu, Dikelo Mamiala and Emilie Owen, produced by Ginger Cube Productions. Three unlikely friends share stories dealing with love, lust and everything between the sheets. The wedding might be over, but the bridesmaids have a long night ahead of them.

Meet Tshepo, affluent flamboyant and nothing short of fabulous. Witness her journey to self-disovery as she abadons her packaged life to satisfy her illicit curiosity.

Cat got out of bed on the wrong side of the convent. A Sex-lebrity – any position, she’s been there and done that and she’s not shy to let everyone know. A go-getter with everything going for her, except when it comes to matters of the heart.

Didi, seemingly, the oldest virgin that ever lived in comparison with her two friends with a world of experience in the opposite sex. This small town, wide-eyed girl has found a fit in this colorful friendship. In short, they are family. Fears, fantasies and fetishes feature in this behind the scenes, at a less than ordinary girls night.
