Thirty years ago Margot Mason, pioneer of the 1970s Women's Liberation movement and fearless academic, wrote her ground-breaking 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 because she blames her for warping her mother's mind and ruining her life with her hit book The Cerebral Vagina.

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.

This gem from the pen of one of Australia's most outstanding playwrights was inspired by Germaine Greer's experience of being held captive in her country house in Essex in 2000.

The cast consists of some of Newcastle’s best actors, including:
Janet Gillam as Margot Mason, a famous feminist writer and academic with a little problem
Elise Bialek as Molly Rivers, an overzealous former student of Margot’s
Alison Cox as Tess Thornton, Margot’s long suffering daughter
Brian Randell as Bryan Thornton, Tess’ sensitive stockbroker husband
Andrew Rodgers as Frank, a macho taxi driver, desperate to tell his story
Alan Bodenham as Theo Hanover, Margot’s flamboyant, gay publisher

So if you are ready for a witty, biting, laugh-out-loud comedy that takes to task some of modern society’s sacred cows and leads them to the slaughter, book now!

Bookings via the NTC office, open 3:00pm-6:00pm, Monday-Friday on 4952-4958
