Four women. One fancy room. A civil war raging outside. A dictator who hasn't yet come home. The same scenes repeated over again, but in a different light. Throw them all together, and that's Abi Morgan's power-driven political effort Splendour. The play was first staged in 2000, and now comes to Brisbane courtesy of local theatre ensemble Now Look Here and CBD arts venue Metro Arts.

Now Look Here isn't just putting on an acclaimed women-centric piece of theatre, however. They're backing up that up not only on stage, but off. Ladies reign among the cast and crew, with the entire production an all-female affair.

As for Morgan, if the writer's name sounds familiar, that's because she has been a mainstay of theatre, theatre and film for the last two decades. On the small screen, she wrote and executive produced BBC mini-series The Hour, while her cinema contributions include the screenplays for The Iron Lady, Shame and Suffragette.
