Wet

When you think of cabaret you might think of bawdy strip teases, caricatures of femininity, and lewd jokes. Wet delivers much more than expectation, adding heart, intellect and genuine eroticism to proceedings.

A moist romp with an empowering feminist message

Settle in for an evening with an ensemble of five wet, female-identifying acts – including your MC, ‘Moist Cooch’ – who hail all the way from Australia to bring a late-night romp that bravely tackles difficult and emotive topics such as beauty standards, motherhood and race.

The show’s message of pussy empowerment and bodily ownership is well considered, and the nudity feels political rather than self-indulgent. Created by a group of women who call themselves The Hairy Godmothers, Wet understands that female bodies can be titillating as well as philosophical.

We are treated to original songs, modern choreography and a sexy science lesson teaching the paradox of Schrodinger’s Pussy. As well as being hilarious, Wet is also emotive and shocking in its no-holds-barred discussion of taboo subjects.

Though the performance is largely geared towards women, regardless of gender, you’re sure to giggle, cry and applaud your way to bodily autonomy, safe in the hands of the Hairy Godmothers from Oz.

Since you’re here…

… we have a small favour to ask. We don't want your money to support a hack's bar bill at Abattoir, but if you have a pound or two spare, we really encourage you to support a good cause. If this review has either helped you discover a gem or avoid a turkey, consider doing some good that will really make a difference.

You can donate to the charity of your choice, but if you're looking for inspiration, there are three charities we really like.

Mama Biashara
Kate Copstick’s charity, Mama Biashara, works with the poorest and most marginalised people in Kenya. They give grants to set up small, sustainable businesses that bring financial independence and security. That five quid you spend on a large glass of House White? They can save someone’s life with that. And the money for a pair of Air Jordans? Will take four women and their fifteen children away from a man who is raping them and into a new life with a moneymaking business for Mum and happiness for the kids.

Theatre MAD
The Make A Difference Trust fights HIV & AIDS one stage at a time. Their UK and International grant-making strategy is based on five criteria that raise awareness, educate, and provide care and support for the most vulnerable in society. A host of fundraising events, including Bucket Collections, Late Night Cabarets, West End Eurovision, West End Bares and A West End Christmas continue to raise funds for projects both in the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Blurb

Open the floodgates and prepare for a torrential downpour, folks! The women of The Hairy Godmothers submerge your juicy minds in an unforgettable cathartic comedy-cabaret. When you think of Wet, do you imagine wetting yourself with laughter, weeping a profound tear, or getting swept away in a deluge of pleasure? In any case, prepare for a flash flood as we explore the vast oceans of femininity and femaleness in this adults-only cabaret with heart. Wet (formerly Pussy) premiered in Australia to sold-out audiences, standing ovations, five-star reviews, and wet seats... in all the best ways.
