Bus Stop Theatre HOT TICKET winner is SHE WOLF

She Wolf By Gillian English

Queen Margaret was the original Cersei Lannister. She was the model for Claire Underwood. She was a woman so cutthroat and cold, she would give Lady Macbeth a run for her money. Only, none of that is true. The way we view women in positions of power hasn’t changed much in the last 500 years.

Honorary mention to: A MAN WALKS INTO A BAR

 Adapted from the works of Dorothy Parker.

“I’m not a writer with a drinking problem, I’m a drinker with a writing problem.” Screen writer, lyricist, poet, playwright, drama critic, short story writer and humorist. Dorothy Parker was a hell of a woman well ahead of her time.  Ah Hell is a selection of Dorothy’s words celebrating her wit and wisdom.“Now I know the things I know, and I do the things I do; and if you do not like me so, to hell, my love, with you!”
