Maidenhead - March 4th - March 9th at The Butterfly Club. 830pm. Seats are strictly limited. Booking is advised.
Described as "Fleabag meets Parks and Rec", 'Maidenhead' is a piece of girly-noir theatre from Rose Bishop, one of Melbourne's most exciting new playwrights. The acclaimed show is returning to the Melbourne stage for a limited season this March as part of The Butterfly Club's 1 Act Play Festival.
Thirty-four year old Ingrid Roberts is lost: her relationship is falling apart, she can't seem to make a baby, and someone keeps pooping in the supply closet at work. But fourteen year old Ingrid Roberts knows exactly where she's going: she's horny and ambitious and ready to leave her small town life behind and follow her dreams.
In Maidenhead we meet both Ingrids as they navigate doomed romances, unruly periods and awful jobs in this blackly comedic play about how hard it is to become who you already were.
