SELECT SHOWING

Ladykiller become a sleeper hit at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018; audiences were attracted to the uncompromising, yet entertaining nature of the piece. 

Female violence is rarely portrayed on stage and when it is, it is often as a response to male violence; indeed statistics show that women who are convicted of violent offences are, in the majority, themselves victims of male violence. Ladykiller, however with its jet-black humour, unmasks a character who possesses not only a staggering level of insight into the deeper recesses of human nature, but also the dreadful sociopathic qualities usually reserved for those who reside in high security prisons.
