The Female of the Species – Stag’s next production

STAG presents our next 2017 production by one of Australia’s most prolific playwrights Joanna Murray-Smith, The Female of the Species, directed by Mark Stratford at the Strathmore Community Hall from 17 to 27 August.

Forty years ago, Margot Mason, pioneer of the 1970s Women’s Liberation movement and fearless academic, wrote her groundbreaking work The Cerebral Vagina and numerous best-sellers followed. Now she has writer’s block. Molly, an unannounced visitor and committed fan of Margot and her work, offers a potential solution—until Molly produces a gun and calmly informs Margot that she intends to kill her.

Joanna Murray-Smith’s deliciously wicked comedy deftly walks the tightrope between satire and farce, proving the female of the species is not only deadlier, but funnier than the male.
