£20 Off The Female Of The Species Theatre Tickets

Margot Mason is a literary giant on a deadline. When an uninvited fan arrives unexpectedly at her home, followed by her family and friends, Margot's feminist world begins to spiral hilariously out of control.

A fading female writer on a deadline, a crazed fan holding a gun and a grudge, a dippy daughter who's misplaced her kids, her dull husband who wants to kick-start his wife's sex drive, an angry taxi driver who didn't get a tip and a desperate publisher willing to publish anything at all come together in 90 minutes of handcuffs and insults.
