Miss Magarida's Way

Miss Magarida's Way

Miss Margarida is your teacher. Wildly unpredictable and bursting with sexual frustration, she hurls her theories at her students with a mix of seduction and aggression. Her curriculum is unique; her lessons funny and insane; her methods sacrosanct. Join her Year 8 class and experience education the Miss Margarida way.

This darkly hilarious satire on dictatorship uses Miss Margarida’s classroom to explore the relationship between the oppressor and the oppressed, with her pupils as her subjects. Miss Margarida bullies, taunts and cajoles. She is an engaging monster - the embodiment of autocracy gone mad.

5Go Theatre Co. present Miss Margarida’s Way. Written in 1971 by Roberto Athayde in reaction to the dictatorship in his country, Brazil. This production will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the play being written.
