This is a superb production… emerging as easily one of the year’s very best.

MARCH 8, 6PM (Doors open) 7PM (Show)

JARDIN ST JAMES, 173 King St, Sydney


Enter a gleefully twisted world of reign and rebellion with Clockfire Theatre’s original play The Natural Conservatorium For Wise Women, presented in Sydney’s ‘little piece of Paris’ Jardin St James.

A decaying relic of patriarchal power, Sir sits in splendid isolation, monarch of Nothing and General in an unending trench war. Enter La Femme du Jardin, a cordial but persistent voice demanding a change in the order of things. Sir appears deaf to the messages - they come in a language he does not comprehend. But, like the unstoppable flourishing of weeds in the untended garden, the voice of revolution becomes impossible to ignore.
