Talkhouse Productions in association with Darlo Drama presents Jacqueline Bircher's Webster's Bitch.

A play about vulgar words and the people who define them.

When their Editor-in-Chief gets caught using some unexpected profanity, the employees of Webster's Dictionary find themselves at the centre of an internet uprising over gender and obscenity in the age of social media. As office politics collide with ambition, morality, and lexicography, the future of the English language hangs in the balance. 

 

Directed by Romney Hamilton

With Andrew Ash, Katie Bell, Jacqueline Gibson, Justin Mason and Vanessa Rowe

20-29 May 2022 at Darlo Drama Theatre, Level 1, 16-18 Oxford Square, Darlinghurst
