The Female of the Species at the Vaudeville Theatre, London

The Female of The Species, New Comedy Starring Eileen Atkins at Vaudeville Theatre, London West End. Margot Mason (played by Dame Eileen Atkins), is a feminist literary giant suffering an extreme case of writer's block as deadline after deadline comes and goes on her next book. When a young fan arrives unexpectedly at her country home, Margot's world slowly and comically begins to unravel as family and friends show up and debate the virtues of her best-sellers, her inconsistent world view, and her decidedly un-motherly touch. Author Joanna Murray-Smith Director Roger Michell.
"Wickedly clever and deadly funny."
