'Female of the Species' at Phoenix Theatre in Edmonds
The Phoenix Theatre presents “Female of the Species” April 14-30 at Phoenix Theatre, 9673 Firdale Ave., Edmonds.
The story, by Joanna Murray-Smith, is directed by Eric Lewis.
Thirty years ago Margot Mason, a pioneer in the 1970s women’s movement, wrote numerous best sellers, but now she has writer’s block.
Molly, an unannounced visitor, offers an apparent solution, until she produces a gun and informs Margot that she’s going to kill her because she ruined her life.
“This wicked comedy deftly walks the tightrope between satire and farce, proving that the female of the species is deadlier as well as funnier than the male,” the theater says.
Shows are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets: $19.50 adults, $16.50 seniors/military.
