THE MAN'S BITCH

by Debra Thomas

When propelled into the bloodthirsty world of Australian politics, Abigail Green’s dissection by the Australian media begins. As environmental catastrophe looms on the horizon in the wake of government corruption, she turns to four women for help.

Angela Carter, feminist writer; Hatshepsut, the woman who was king; Elizabeth Taylor, film star and sex symbol; and Miranda Kerr – a noni juice drinking, hot yoga doing non-feminist.

Inspired by the rise and fall of Australia’s first female Prime Minister, this provocative piece that is both psychological drama and magical realism is an examination of the way we treat our women – and just what the consequences are when the voices of half a nation are silenced.
