Animus Theatre Company In Association with The Dirty Blondes Present
The New York Premiere of SURFER GIRL By Leslye Headland
What happens when we disappear in order to survive; softening our edges and blurring our outlines to the point of invisibility so the people around us will, well keep us around?
Surfer Girl, Ms. Headland's one-woman play exploring the sin of sloth, and part of her Seven Deadly Plays cycle, tackles these questions. Not exactly homeless, never quite broke, always ready to become whomever she needs to be in order to stick around just that little bit longer. Surfer Girl chronicles a young woman's affectless journey through life as she combats that passively inert state of mind that gives rise to her loss of self and to...couch surfing.
