Girl Wild is a cheeky drama exploring love, abandonment, fantasies, lust, lies, stalking, mental illness, self retribution, identity, loneliness and the desperate need to belong.

Whilst waiting for the arrival of Natasha, a well respected actor, a young rapper, tells Natasha's estranged daughter of their intimate bond. When Phil's violent outburst backfires, Tash arrives home to find her daughter and an obsessed fan with a serious injury. The play explores the stories we tell ourselves to survive, the consequences for leaving your family to follow your heart, the vulnerability of live performance, the art form of theatre as both a passion and escape, and the dire consequences of making a mistake as simple as spilling someone's drugs from off their spoon.

Shortlisted for the Rodney Seaborn Playwright's Award, 2018.
