Party Girl

Theatre and Physical Theatre • Solo show
New South Wales • SA Premiere

When your day goes from bad to worse, the only thing left to do is strap on a unicorn horn and play pass the f**cking parcel.  Fairy Sprinkles is the kids party entertainer of every gross dad’s dreams. In this rock n' roll monologue from Lucy Heffernan all the glitzy hell of a kids birthday party explodes out on stage to challenge traditional feminine behaviour, and explore the impact of mental illness on family.

A story about love and faith, Party Girl is an intimate, funny, and deeply moving work that speaks (and sings) directly to the audience.

Created and Performed by Lucy Heffernan
