Arts Theatre Cronulla's third production for 2019 is The Female of the Species, a wicked adult comedy that walks the tightrope between satire and farce while exploring how the ideology of writers of the 1970’s Women’s Liberation Movement era may have affected some readers. The inspiration for the play was a true-life incident involving Germaine Greer being held at gunpoint by a young student in 2000.
