Every audition room is full to bursting with female talent – so why are there so few roles for women? Is it a relic of historical opression, a by-product of the stories we tell or simply a fact of life? Take a musical journey through classic and contemporary theatre with Kate O’Sullivan, to discover why female theatre artists of all kinds still find themselves bonking their heads on the “glass curtain”, and why all the best roles are written for men.
All The Best Roles Are Written For Men is a one-woman musical cabaret starring Kate O’Sullivan.
“Kate has proven her immense talent in serious monologues and dramatic productions.” GordonTheOptom, 2022
“I loved seeing O’Sullivan bring the new element of a powerful woman working through traditionally masculine problems. ” Theatre Travels, 2020
Found somewhere at the junction of academia and entertainment, Kate is a performer with a background in science, education and improvised theatre. With a passion for storytelling and bringing education opportunities to a range of audiences, she takes edu-tainment to the floor for both children and adults alike. With a performance history across Australia, Kate’s return to Perth has been marked by critically aclaimed performances in “Emilie La Marquise Du Chatelet Defends Her Life Tonight” (a theatrical take on an historical woman in STEM) and more recently as Nurse Ratched in the Australian Adaptation of “One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest”. No stranger to the mic, Kate is bringing her first solo show to FRINGE WORLD in 2023.
