Sex sells and Flora Mackenzie sold sex
As part of her Second World War efforts, Flora Mackenzie, daughter of an eminent family, went from proprietor of a frock shop to that of a knock shop, and her boldness scandalised a conservative city.
Famous Flora portrays the life of one of the boldest identities in Auckland’s history, that of a madame supreme who ruled the city’s underworld sex scene for thirty years, and contrasts two vivid periods in Auckland's history: the glamorous and stylish 1940s with the moral panics of the 1970s.
Tickets to the show include free entry to The White House's regular entertainment for those that wish to remain and enjoy that show.
Famous Flora is written by Elisabeth Easther and directed by Ben Crowder.
Please note that the bar at The White House is cash or White House dollars only. If you'd like to use Eft-pos to get White House dollars at reception, please be aware there is a $2 surcharge on each Eft-pos transaction.
