After ten years of rapturous performances, Penny Ashton's Promise & Promiscuity is celebrating by heading to all its favourite venues. Having recently wowed Blenheim with Olive Copperbottom, Ashton is back and can't wait to jump about with excitement in the fabulous ASB complex.
Follow the fortunes of Miss Elspeth Slowtree as she battles literary snobbery, her mother's nerves and Cousin Horatio's digestions, all armed with a superior wit, excellent ukulele skills and generally being quite bright ... you know ... for a girl. Balls will be attended, crosses will be stitched and manners will be minded, all with not one ankle in sight.
Penny Ashton (Winner of 2018's World Buskers Festival's Iron Chicken and Best Theatre at the Adelaide Fringe) is NZ's own global comedienne having performed over 1000 solo shows all over the world. In 2021, she also made the most of lockdown by launching her own menopause podcast Showy Ovaries.
