Theatre: Gym & Tonic

Written and performed by Roz Hammond
The Blue Room Theatre
Until February 1

There’s a case that the most genuine stage hit of the last year was the awkwardly titled 51 Shades of Maggie Muff at the Subiaco Arts Centre. It was extended at least twice, drawing ebullient crowds almost entirely comprised of women.
Call it what you will, but this genre of middle-brow theatre (Amanda Muggleton’s various projects are the brand leaders) clearly strikes a chord with women who identify strongly with the stories, the humour and, importantly, each other – hence an almost conspiratorial connection between the performer and audience.
