“In just four pages Jonathan Edgington gives a life story - a devastating one - a short one. The staccato sentences are loaded with imagery as we hear about a young woman's happy childhood and the dreadful turn of events which change her; break her. A fantastic monologue for a young actor - rich in language and vision. Quietly brilliant.”
Paul Smith (Writer)
