Wonder Girl (FiRST BiTE) @ Ovalhouse Theatre
Wonderful, a seemingly silent 17 year old, seeks revenge on adults who let young people down. She uses the devices at her disposal – a few pizzas, Pentecostal rhetoric and one lost soul. This hard-hitting play pulls audiences into Wonderful’s world, highlighting the challenges she faces caught between two realities.
Eva Edo’s play, Wonder Girl, explores the notion that children in care are super heroes who escape into their own surreal worlds to survive.
