Michaelmas Week 3
After The Man Presents: Women delighted crowds with an 100% sold-out run in Easter 2017, it was thought that women could never be funny again. Like, by law. But fear not: The Man is back, and he’s here to present even more hilarious ladies in a night of ‘acerbic feminist comedy’ (The Tab).
What happens to the women that men can’t write? In this showcase of Strong Female Characters, Cambridge’s finest lady and non-binary comics will endeavour to find out. Fresh from every screen and stage ever, the cast-offs, the sidekicks, the non-specific love interests and the straight-up plot-devices come together to stick it to The Man. Specifically, one man in particular. Their writer.
With multiple women actually allowed on stage at once, who knows what might happen? We wager it will be something very, very funny.
This is Good Girls, Written Bad(ly).
★★★★½ – The Tab
