The Female of the Species


  • Bentleys Bar 90 Ilam Road Christchurch, Canterbury, 8041 New Zealand (map)

DRAMASOC presents an award winning modern farcical comedy. Based on true events, The Female of the Species takes place over the course of one evening where a larger than life celebrity, Margot Mason, is held hostage at gun point in her own home by a crazed fan. 

As the night progresses, many quirky characters pay a visit to Margot's countryside home, fiercely and hilariously commentating on her as a writer, feminist and human.

This evening will be one of food and drink as well as theatre, with the bar and kitchen open for your enjoyment. 

Featuring DRAMASOC veterans as well as some new faces, this year's summer show is not to be missed!
