By Melanie Wilson
A thrilling and touchingly funny encounter with a self-titled simple girl – at once mischievous flaneur, epic sentimentalist, and grandiose fibber. Tales of glamorous peril jostle with a live soundtrack, executed by idiosyncratic heroine Melanie Wilson.
Nominated for a Spirit of the Fringe and Best Actress Award at the Dublin Fringe Festival.
Co-directed by Emma Benson.
"**** Just occasionally you come across a show on the fringe that's innovative, startling and ever so slightly indefinable. For me, Simple Girl is it. "
"Wilson's tools are not just the word or the physical, but also her own intensity, light and dark, and an extraordinary soundscape that transports us into a dislocating otherness... There are few more compelling presences than that of Melanie Wilson."
