Girl Asleep

Synopsis: The world is closing in on Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning fifteen she can't bear to leave her childhood, it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she's flung into a parallel place; a world that's weirdly erotic, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous - only there can she find herself. Based on the critically acclaimed production by Windmill Theatre, GIRL ASLEEP is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.

- Elliott.

- At least I've got

manners, Steven.


Greta, right?

- Yeah.

- That's a good name.

What's it short for?



Or just Greta?

You know, as in short for Greta?

Right, cool.

I'm Elliott.

Are you 14?

- Yeah.

- Snap, me too!

14 is good, huh?

But I'm seriously

looking forward to 15.

I think 15's gonna

turn a corner.

It's gonna be so awesome.

It's gonna herald the

dawn of a new era,

or something like that.

Are you from around here?

- No, we just moved.

- Cool, right, yeah, awesome.

'Cause I am.

You know, from around here.

I know pretty much everything

there is to know about

around here.

I know the population, elevation,

average rainfall, climate,

local industries.

You know, that sort of thing.

- Elliott, Elliott,


- Whatever, Steven!

So, do you have any brothers?

What about sisters?

Do you have any sisters?

- Yeah.

- Oh, awesome.

Sisters are the best.

What about friends?

Do you have any friends?


'Cause we can be friends.

If you want.

I'm pretty

non-judgmental, you know.

I'm usually happy to just

go with the flow, actually.

I find that's the best way

to be friendly with people.

I've got six Guinea pigs.

I count them as good friends,

but their lifespan tends

to hamper things a little.

- Oh no, please!

- So what do you reckon?

Should we just hang

out or something?

We don't have to.

I just I haven't

got much to do, so.

- Sure.

- Really?

- I guess.

- Oh, awesome.

Good choice.

I like your thinking.

We should get a donut.

We should totally celebrate

this with a donut.

- Okay.

- Wait here.

Just wait here!

- Hey.

You're hanging out with us.

We've taken quite

a shine to you.

- I...

- ssh shh shh!

We like you, new girl.

Don't spoil it now by speaking.

He's not invited.

- Greta!

Greta, time!


- Coming!

- Pencil, quick!

- Oh, there's

eyeliner in my bag.

- She's home.

- What do you call

this, Genevieve?

What the hell do you call this?


- Don't speak to your

mother like that!

- Hey.

Give her these, will ya?

See ya, babes.

- I don't know why you think

this behavior is acceptable.

I raised you better than this.

- What, than to be a slut?

- Oi, watch it!

- You think you can

just throw yourself on anyone?

- Conrad!

- Hey.

Have you, um,

have you heard of that new

movie, what's it called?

Oh, um, ah, constipation.

- No.

- Mm, it's 'cause it

hasn't come out yet.

I saw diarrhea, though.

- Oh, enough!

- It got leaked early.

- We're still eating!

- Seven, definitely a seven.

- Well, hey, I haven't

got a seven in a while.

- I'll get it.

- If it's for me,

don't answer it.

Oi, come on, lights out.

Aye, aye.


Goodnight, sweetheart.

- Come on.

So anyway.

I suggested she should

use more tongue next time,

if she wants that to work.

Especially on Derek.

- Really?

- Did you?

- No, 'cause dad came home,

and we had to go downstairs

and pretend nothing

was happening.

Didn't we, Amber?

- That's full on, hey?

- Not really.

What do you normally do?

- What?

- More tongue, or less?

- Me?

It depends, I guess.

- Really?

On what?

- Whether I feel like it

or not.

- Hey, I can't remember.

Are we going skating with

the guys later this week?

- I think so.

- Ooh, we should.

You should come too.

I could introduce you to Derek

if you feel like it.

Or not.

- Awesome, that,

that sounds awesome.

I'm not feeling so great.

- Have you got your period?

- Yeah, I've just, I've

gotta find a toilet.

- What about that one?

- Hey, Elliott!

- Hey.

- I'm sorry about before.
