“The best Aykbourn play, Alan Aykbourn never wrote…” – The Independent, London, 2008
The Female of the Species, written by Australian playwright Joanna Murray-Smith, is the latest drama production from local amateur theatre group, The Stirling Players.
Based loosely on a real incident involving Germaine Greer, the play features Margo Mason, a literary giant whose world is turned upside down with an array of uninvited and unwelcome guests. Before she knows it, Molly’s got a gun, Tess’ kids are home alone with the sugar cubes, Bryan nearly kills them all, and Margot’s handcuffed to the desk…..when all she wants to do is meet her deadline!
Having produced over 100 productions since 1972, the award-winning Stirling Players are the first amateur theatre company in South Australia to perform Female, an adult comedy that has received rave reviews in London and LA.
Directed by Erik Strauts, The Female of the Species is running at the Stirling Community Theatre from the 24th of September to the 9th of October.
