Synopsis

The Girl Who Wished is the story of a young girl who prefers to be somebody other than herself. The play explores the idea that role-playing is a form of self-imprisonment as it deals with the brief fulfilment of a young girl's wish and the consequences on her life when she realises that she was much better off as herself.
