The Female of the Species' finds Margot Mason, feminist, writer, and fearless academic, trying to write her next life-altering bestseller in her cottage in Umbria. Despite having radically changed women's lives with her controversial books again and again, despite celebrity, she is wrestling with writer's block. Enter Molly, student and idealist, one of those most deeply affected by Margot's writings. But this is not a fan visit: Molly has a gun and a shedload of issues. What unfolds is a deliciously wicked comedy that deftly walks the tightrope between satire and farce.
