Synopsis/Details: 

Dave is an ordinary bloke, he gets on with his own life without too much strife, being vaguely sexist as he goes...

Until one night he falls through a rift in the space/time continuum and ends up in an alternate reality where the patriarchy doesn't exist and women 'rule the roost'.

Now he's got to fight for equal rights and pay, be mocked for being 'his age' and not married with kids by now, listen to women cat call when he passes them in the street, and be subjected to all sorts of misandry - exactly the way women are treated in his own reality...

The Prime Minister is a woman, the American President is a woman (with a First Husband), TV shows and movies are mostly female leads, the internet pokes fun at 'ugly' men, and magazines carry articles telling me how to improve their looks, dress 'right' and lose weight, memes flow around the internet telling men how to avoid being sexually assaulted and anyone decrying the matriarchy gets bitch slapped...

At showbiz events men are criticised for their dress sense, or lack thereof, and patronised by journos asking facetious questions about how long it took them to get ready this evening and breaking the glass ceiling when a man gets a lead in a movie or TV show, male roles are defined as "strong" and male characters patronised as "ass kickers"...

All the sport on TV is female dominated; football, rugby, boxing, cricket, golf, tennis, motorsport. The men win far less money than the women in their separate, marginalised versions of these sports.

As Dave tries to navigate this alien place, he stumbles upon a woman from his own reality...

The Writer: S. E. McKendrick

Hello, and welcome to my bio, please keep your arms and legs inside the vehicle at all times Please pay attention as there will be a quiz which will count towards 80% of your grade at the end of the year. I was born. Then...I grew up. I taught myself how to type. I have no idea why, it seemed like a good idea at the time. In retrospect it was a good idea, as my handwriting is atrocious Then I started writing a novel, only that didn't work out too good, so I decided to write a film screenplay instead. It was about a Genie and was really really funny Sadly the only copy has been lost to the mists of time three house moves ago. Anyways, over the years, I have written lots of screenplays -I can...
