Anna Piper Scott stars in a controversial new work that asks, "How did one of the world's most celebrated authors become one of the most hated?"

In this rare and exclusive literary event, join world-renowned children's author JK (as played by Anna Piper Scott) for an exclusive, hard hitting one-on-one interview. Her books have been read and loved worldwide, and her magical world lives in the hearts of millions of adults and children. However, in recent years, her novels have receded into the background as her controversial political views have taken centre stage.

Some consider her to be the saviour of modern feminism. Others consider her to be the face of a hate movement.

This original play places two oppositional forces against each other in an attempt to unmask the millionaire and reconcile the feelings of former fans and those on the fence. Often illuminating, sometimes infuriating, and always candid, she finally answers the questions she never gets asked, and gives the answers she's always wanted to give.

A must-see for book-lovers, feminists, and women of all backgrounds.
