1911. A story true. The scourge of brutes, bullies and badmen alike; afeared by ruffians and rowdies across the land: Flossie leMar has many ways to make evildoers relent. A visionary with pronounced ideas about the role of women under attack, Flo is a force to be reckoned with. Chief amongst her interests is one Joseph Gardiner, pugilist, wrestler and Master of the Oriental Arts. Armed with her apocryphal handbook, The Life and Adventures of Miss Florence leMar, the World’s Famous Ju-Jitsu Girl, Flo and Joe are a vaudeville sensation.
Pauleen Hayes' play The Hooligan and the Lady, which has been developed with work-in-progress showings at Magdalena Aotearoa gatherings, is getting attention in high places: MP Trevor Mallard has just posted about it on his blog, generating some fiesty comments:
The Hooligan and the Lady will premiere at this year's Fringe Festival.
Welcome to our final Magdalena Aotearoa Gathering for 2010. This is to be in the form of a celebratory pot luck feast and networking opportunity to be held at the Newtown Community and Cultural Centre theatre on Saturday 27 November 2010.
A Performance Feast
The Magdalena Project is an international network of women in contemporary theatre, Magdalena Aotearoa is a South Pacific branch of this network. The banquet is an opportunity for practitioners to connect with one another on a less formal basis over a shared meal.
Andrea Ariel reports on attending the Brazilian Magdalena Festival in July 2010.
On July 12th, at Auckland Airport, with ALFONSINA packed in a few bags and a team of six of us ready to embark on a 47 hour plane ride to Brazil, I could not help thinking back to the day when Pedro Ilgenfritz invited me to start a theatre company with him and two more actors, both women. Back then, VÉRTICE was only a dream goal.
The second of three one-day Gatherings for 2010 will be held on Sunday 29 August, 9am-10pm, at the Berhampore School Hall in Wellington.
The theme is "Art & Practice" and there is an exciting line-up of presenters. Lunch will be a shared pot-luck meal, and we'll go to a local cafe for dinner before reconvening for the traditional, legendary, not-to-be-missed open mic cabaret extravaganza closing concert in the evening.

i've tried to set up new user registration notification using triggers; i created an action (send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org) to happen when a new user registers. but it doesn't work. i don't know why not.
it is really stupid that this is not something built in to the system - seems like a fairly basic function, & if the system can cope with emailing the new user, then it should also be able to email the admin.
You can't pay for the newsletter unless you are logged in.
You don't find this out until you get to an access denied page which is both rude and discouraging.
One option is to hide the subscribe menutitem until you are logged in, and have a "log in to subscribe" button instead. Though they still then have to choose to pay again. I wonder if Logintoboggan might fix this problem - or would it hijack all logins rather than just these ones?
