Fashionably famous feminist author Margot Mason has always been deadlier and cleverer than any male. But when she's held hostage in her country home, her comfortable life spirals hilariously out of control.

Bristling with wit and intelligence, THE FEMALE OF THE SPECIES is a monstrously upfront comedy inspired by Germaine Greer's infamous brush with a crazed and determined young female student.

Starring Elizabeth Hawthorne renowned for her unforgettable performances in MASTER CLASS, VITA AND VIRGINIA, THE GRADUATE and DOUBT.

"Hawthorne is truly magnificent...an actress at the peak of her powers"
