BEDTIME STORIES FOR GIRLS Comes to The One-Act Play Festival
We all know someone who would sell our secrets to the devil for the chance to live forever, and when you're 13, the devil is your friends, and living forever is sitting at the cool table.
The Kate Cameron Company is excited to begin 2019 with a new play at The Butterfly Club by emerging playwright Genevieve Atkins. Directed by Kate Cameron, this is a production that doesn't conform to the laws of logic and reality of the grown-up world.
For 4 performances only, Bedtime Stories for Girls is presented as part of The Butterfly Club's inaugural one-act play festival.
"I love your hair so much I could die. I could skin you for being so pretty."
Bedtime Stories for Girls penetrates the psyche of four girls as they test the waters of adolescence through puberty and back again. Time is only mostly linear and the friendships only mostly real as they push and pull each other, sometimes violently, through emotional and physical barricades. Set at a deceptively casual slumber party, it doesn't take long before the giggles and gossip are peeled back to reveal the monsters that haunt and inhabit these young girls.
Following up a mentorship with playwright Ross Mueller, a successful development workshop, and a Bundanon residency, Genevieve Atkins is a bold theatrical voice that doesn't hold back. Bedtime Stories for Girls races headfirst into the independent scene.
This production opens on Mon, February 25th and closes on Sat, March 2nd. Bookings recommended.
Dates: Feb 25, 27, 28, and March 2
Venue: The Butterfly Club, 5 Carson Place, Melbourne Tickets: thebutterflyclub.com
