"You breaker of mended things. You cruel cactus lover. You useless tangled slinky toy"
Another year, another string of disappointments for BirthdA Girl. Bored, bewildered and staring straight down the barrel of adolescence, she has little choice but to ponder out loud on the nature of friendship, grief, solitude and what it means to enter womanhood via the margins.
Comprising a series of short tragically-comical monologues told from the point of view of a young woman with Asperger's, 'BirthdA' provides a portrayal of the dilemmas of youth in equal parts familiar and bizarre.
