Event details


Space Theatre, Adelaide Festival Centre


Tuesday 14 March - Saturday 18 March 2023


Framed by velvet drapes and bedecked with Jatz cracker crumbs and cigarette ash, Maureen invites you into her bohemian living room. She’s here to take you on an intimate journey brimming with witty repartee, well-worn life advice, an exotic array of friends now gone and the dauntless potency of limitless imagination.

Magnificently flouting many of the rules of drama and narrative, Maureen: Harbinger of Death redefines our concepts of older women. Caustic and moving, it is an uplifting demonstration of the wisdom, vitality, kindness and humour of women too often overlooked or dismissed by society.

A night of wit, imagination and storytelling with a character you won’t forget.
