Golden Jam Productions as part of Sydney Fringe Festival present The Wasp.

It has been 20 years since high school, and that long since Heather (Natalie Freeman) and Carla (Nicola James) have seen each other. In a classic schoolyard bullying scenario, the bullying by Carla has transcended into Heather's adulthood. The two reconnect over Facebook and agree to catch up over tea.

It becomes wildly apparent their lives have taken completely different paths. Heather's personality is polished, she has a high earning career coupled with a loving husband and beautiful home, while remaining childless. Carla's personality is the complete opposite, she lives above her means and is pregnant with her fifth child.

As they meet, Heather presents Carla with a proposition – and a bag of cash to go along with it.

With themes covering schoolyard bullying, and the female protagonists' in an unexpected predatory style role, the gripping psychological thriller is full of unanticipated twists that had me sitting at the edge of my seat!

The performance has come straight from London and is described by The Stage as 'Absolutely excellent… A taut, brilliantly calibrated two-hander' and I couldn't agree more.

The Wasp is playing at Erskineville Town Hall at a very affordable $22.20 per ticket for a superior performance, guaranteed to astonish and have tongues wagging!
