Project History

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. "

The Scotsman

"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."
