The Female of the Species

The Female of the Species

 Written by Joanna Murray-Smith
Directed by Yvonne Mes

This Australian play was first performed in 2006 in Melbourne and was a hit in London's West End in 2008.

Margot Mason, celebrated feminist, academic, mother and author of best-seller
The Cerebral Vagina, has never had any problems with inspiring adulation.
As she sits in her country home, struggling with a deadline, in walks Molly
Rivers, student, idealist and daughter of one of Margot's biggest fans.
Initially flattered, Margot is less pleased when Molly handcuffs her to her desk
and threatens to kill her.
