Description

This is a play about birthdays. It's also about growing up, the future and the inevitability of ageing – a prospect that you are finding increasingly unnerving. At its heart, birthday girl confronts fears of the future and how scary it can feel to grow older. Mixing together various anecdotes of birthdays past, it highlights how important these milestones are. For 45 minutes, we see inside the head of the otherwise unnamed birthday girl. We only know her age and that it is her birthday – other than that, this girl could be anyone, possibly even you.
