You Won't Fall Asleep in this Show
Windmill Theatre and Adelaide Festival present the world premiere of Girl Asleep. Part of the Windmill Theatre Trilogy, Girl Asleep (alongside Fugitive and School Dance), is one of three unique shows exploring defining adolescent moments. Each of the three works have been created by a highly acclaimed team with director Rosemary Myers, writer Matthew Whittet, designer Jonathon Oxlade, lighting designer Richard Vabre and sound designer Luke Smiles.
Girl Asleep follows 15 year old Greta Driscoll who is chronically shy and privately falling apart. Frozen in the spotlight of her birthday, things go from bad to worse when a stranger arrives propelling her into a parallel place; a latent world that's weirdly erotic, ultra violent and thoroughly ludicrous.
This story is part fairytale and part lipstick-smeared vigilante escapade, following a girl's own adventure where heroism and gender implode in a unique exposé of the sisterhood.
