Wicked women, seductive sinners, vicious vixens – Thanks to Hollywood, the Femme Fatale is typically depicted as a curvaceous, red-lipped, glamorous blonde with a gun in her hand. Shadows of Angels exposes the real and gritty lives of women in crime. Four very different women, with cleverly interwoven stories, challenge our ideas of gender, sexuality, poverty and crime. Set within the city slums of Australia in 1929 the play explores the desperate lives and dangerous minds of the female criminal in this gripping piece of theatre.
