First Lady of Comedy Tumi Morake and 'the original Cavewoman’ Vanessa Frost team up in Tease!, a situation comedy set around a suburban hair salon. Between the two of them, the leading comediennes play a host of hilarious characters ranging from conservatively-minded pensioners to a sexually frustrated housewife, in this critically acclaimed show that won a Standard Bank Ovation Award at the 2016 National Arts Festival in Grahamstown.

Eva and Neo, best friends and partners in a suburban hair salon, reach a crossroads in their personal lives. Approaching middle age and unhappy in their relationships, after spending the night sinking shooters at a bar, the pair drunkenly stumble into an adult toy shop. They make some acquisitions and this inspires an idea. Why not use the safe space for frank discussion that is their hair salon to sell sex toys to their eclectic selection of regular clients?

Raunchy,  brash, unflinchingly frank and laugh-out-loud funny, Tease! explores heartfelt and hard truths about female sexuality, libido and desire.

As Vanessa Frost says, the play is about "answering the question we all quietly worry about - am I normal?”.
