A blood-soaked morality tale about victimhood, power and flipping the gender rule book on psychopathy.

A hotel room, a maid and a dead woman. It’s not what it looks like, really, it’s not. It was self-defence…and anyway the woman was asking for it.

The chambermaid considers herself to be a pretty normal person; she goes to the cinema. She reads books. She pretended to read the party manifestos at the General Election. She’s even read The Psychopath Test and she’s pretty sure she’s not one so…

Winner of the Pleasance VAULT award 2019, “blood-curdling shriek of a smash hit”, Ladykiller received rave reviews and sold out houses at Edinburgh Fringe 2018 and Vault Festival 2019. Ladykiller is a blood-soaked morality tale about victimhood, power and flipping the gender rule book on psychopathy.

About the Company:

The Thelmas formed in response to a growing need for the support and development of new female writers. We believe that female-led work should exist on its own merits as artistically excellent theatre, and not be seen as somehow niche. We are passionate about promoting stories which disrupt traditional female narratives and committed to telling intersectional stories. The Thelmas an Ovalhouse Associate Artist 2019-2021.
