Kate Normington is back by huge demand in the hit show, Bombshells, at the Studio Theatre.

In this one-woman show, Kate Normington tells six stories about the stresses and joys of modern life. There's Meryl Davenport, a mother who delivers her non-stop day in a rapid-fire internal monologue; Tiggy Entwhistle, a cactus lover bravely attempting to rise above her relationship crisis; Mary O'Donnell, a feisty teenage schoolgirl competing in a talent quest; Theresa McTerry, an increasingly disillusioned bride on her wedding day; Winsome Webster, a widow with an appetite for the unexpected and Zoe Struthers - An American cabaret singer who's had her fair share of personal problems.

"Normington is da bomb!" - Adrienne Sichel/ Star Tonight

"If you do nothing at all else this month, you must be sure to make your way to Pieter Toerien's Studio Theatre at Montecasino to see Kate Normington in Bombshells. You will be moved beyond the telling of it, and then laugh until the muscles of your mouth ache!" - May Jordan/ Business Day

"Kate Normington is astounding in this one-woman show in which she plays six characters. Not to be missed!" - Zingi Mkefa/ Sunday Times

"A finer piece of writing and acting you aren't likely to see" - Adrienne Sichel/ Star Tonight

"Kate's back with a bang!"

"It's almost as if the show were tailor-made for Normington, enabling her to knock our socks off with her considerable talents once again!" - Christina Kennedy/ Citizen
