Party Girl

Date: 4 Mar 2019

A young woman works as a party fairy.

When her life steadily implodes around her, Party Girl asks the question; how can you be a fairy and have no faith?

Written and performed by Lucy Heffernan, Party Girl is an exploration of a flawed female with desires that pull her in opposite directions, leading to destruction and chaos.

“I had a very brief career as a party fairy, says Heffernen. “I was able to put a couple of funny stories away in the back pocket from that. But it also made me reflect on those other instances when we’re supposed to present ourselves and behave in a certain way. It struck me that all young women are expected to be polite and maternal and never angry. You must be a good fairy, never a bad fairy.

“So it started from a real life experience and then expanded into something about the way women have to be in the world.”
