Not Now, Not Ever is a techno-arachnid fantasy – a sing-and-dance-along to Julia Gillard’s ‘Misogyny Speech’ and a meditation on what it means to bring a girl into the twenty-first century. In a world that is warming, sinking, outlawing crop diversity and running short of fresh water, it asks: can Spider Woman fight evil, weave her way to justice, feed her children, finish the ironing and still be prime minister?
