When former Queen Bee of the book club Robyn publishes her first novel, the truth about the death of her nemesis, Katie, begins to unravel. Female friendships are tested in this laugh-out-loud, brutally honest, new comedy.
Everyone has a nemesis. And for Robyn (Kate Raison, TWO), Queen Bee of her long running book club, that nemesis comes in the form of free-spirited and luminous Katie (Chantelle Jamieson, STC’s STILL POINT TURNING: THE CATHERINE MCGREGOR STORY). When Katie is invited to join the group, Robyn’s once steady kingdom is rocked by her exuberance and carefree honesty. Katie is next-level annoying, and Robyn swiftly sets about enacting a plan to eject her from her precious book club, with shocking and unexpected consequences.
Laugh-out-loud funny and brutally honest, KILLING KATIE re-opens the book on female alliances, guilt and the mysterious forces that can either make or break a friendship group. With a hilarious ensemble cast of five extraordinary women, don’t miss Tracey Trinder’s slice of book noir.

“Friendships, rivalries, mystery, hors d’oeuvres… murder – it has all the ingredients. And putting five brilliant comedic actresses on stage together is bound to serve up a deliciously hilarious night at the theatre. I can’t wait to get in the rehearsal room and let the madness begin. We know and love … and hate… these women. They are us, or people we know. And this story could happen to any of us.
Audiences will recognise themselves in these friendships, these disrupted group dynamics. The new person arriving in an established friendship circle and shaking things up… we’ve all been there on one side -or the other! I’m so excited to see the extraordinary Chantelle Jamieson shaking things up on the Ensemble stage. She’s a force to be reckoned with.” – Director Francesca Savige
