“Just occasionally you come across a show on the fringe that's innovative, startling and ever so slightly indefinable. For me, Simple Girl is it.” The Scotsman ****
A thrilling and touchingly funny encounter with a self-titled simple girl - at once mischievous flaneur, epic sentimentalist and grandiose fibber. Tales of glamorous peril jostle with a live soundtrack, executed by idiosyncratic heroine Melanie Wilson.
Nominated for a Spirit of the Fringe and Best Actress Award at the Dublin Fringe Festival.
Co-directed by Emma Benson.
