“Theatre is a subversive art form. No where more so, than when a group of smart, talented and extremely forthright women venture into the fray of tattered emotions and downgraded expectations of policy gone wrong – and make the audience laugh, while leaving the theatre fully cognizant of the joke.” Laure Fyfe, Capital Critic’s Circle

Created collectively, The Public Servant is a new play about work and citizenship. Crafted from interviews with over 40 civil servants the play charts the heroic and the banal in the quest to manage the affairs of a country.
Step inside the halls of power as Madge, a young, idealistic and enthusiastic civil servant, gets ready to write her first official memo. It’s an auspicious occasion that brings to light all the inner-workings and absurdities of government bureaucracy.
