Synopsis

An undefined group of voices ponder, discuss and explore what the perfect girl might be like. In turns melancholy and comical, everyday and fantastical, the text moves between a number of different ideas, pitting these against each other.

Following an associative logic, the play takes inspiration from some of Martin Crimp's formal experiments, but also seeks to find a voice of its own.

Contains monologues.
