How did a decent girl like me get involved with a cult of murderous secretaries?
New girl Patty is just dying to fit in with the perfectly put together secretaries at the Lumber Mill. But when the local lumberjacks start going missing, how far will she go to join their clique?
From American theatre company, The Five Lesbian Brothers, comes a murderously dark comedy that splits open gender stereotypes and carves up the line between violent instincts and passive submission.
Deirdre McLaughlin, Genesis Future Directors Award recipient, directs The Secretaries, integrating creative access into the heart of the show.
Every performance of The Secretaries will be relaxed. You can move, make noise and respond naturally to the performance. You can come and go at any time and there will be a chill out space available. Because of the nature and content of this show, there will be bright lights and loud sounds. We’ll provide more details about sound and light closer to the performance.
There are references to sexual harassment and sexual violence, self-hatred, self-violence, reference and self-objectification. There are themes of homophobia, ableism, body-image sensitivity, fatphobia and diet talk, cliques and cult indoctrination and menstruation. There will also be guns, drinking alcohol, sexual acts and a lot of stage blood onstage.
