Girl Asleep

Windmill Theatre Trilogy

By Matthew Whittet, Directed by Rosemary Myers


"Rosemary Myers' inventive direction marries well with Whittet's pop-culture wit."

- Sunday Mail

Greta Driscoll is frozen in the spotlight of her fifteenth birthday party. As the events of the night unfold, going from bad to worse, a stranger arrives sending Greta into a parallel place; a latent world that’s weirdly erotic, ultra-violent and thoroughly ludicrous – it is there she will find herself. This is a girls’ own adventure where heroism and gender are turned on their head in a unique explosion of the sisterhood.

Windmill Theatre’s Fugitive, School Dance and Girl Asleep form a unique trilogy of rites-of-passage stories by Helpmann Award-nominated writer/director team Matthew Whittet and Rosemary Myers. The adrenaline of the alpha male, the pain of the loser, and the dark inner world of the teenage girl underscore these three distinct works each delivering an outrageous, hilarious, painful, violent and ultimately celebratory experience.
