A young woman with greasy hair and smudged eyeliner sleeps on an old couch under a dirty blanket. A fluorescent light flickers and buzzes on the edge of extinction. She is exhausted and her sleep is thick. This is the Girlfriend. She is capable of hideous things. (Summerworks 2012 Festival Program)
