Drunk Girl

"BRAVE, CONFRONTATIONAL, AND EXPRESSIVE" -THE QUILLIAD 

Part theatre piece and part storytelling show, Drunk Girl explores the intimacy, tenacity, celebration and terror of women who drink. We watch performer Thea Fitz-James unpack the Drunk Girl and her place in contemporary society. Drunk Girl is that moment when the party takes a turn, but it's too late to leave: were caught in a rollercoaster of calorie-counting keg parties, false feminisms, denial and love. This new work from the creator of fringe favourite, NAKED LADIES takes an honest look at how Drunk Girls occupy the contemporary imagination, as contemporary crisis, or radical feminist? 

Drunk Girl was workshopped at Canadian Association for Theatre Research’s recent conference in May 2014 (Congress 2014). Drunk girl was part of the Write On Playwrights Showcase, Fall 2015. A theatrical piece deeply influenced by performance art, Drunk Girl presents a number of literary and cultural references to women and alcohol.
