A Fringe First WiNning One Woman Show-
Written performed and co-directed by Sue Turner-Cray
FRINGE FIRST WINNER - LA WEEKLY SOLO PERFORMANCE NOMINEE
Sara “The Manchester Girl” is determined to escape the conformity of her Leicester working class existence. Being smart enough to know she’s pretty she flees Leicester to a dodgey Manchester modeling Agency. Under the tutelage of rotund modeling maven Doreen, Sara is catapulted into the wild and crazy 1980’s Tokyo Japan modeling scene.
This Fringe First winning one woman show is a dizzying odyssey through the sex and drug infested world of modeling as Sarah struggles to stay a size 2 or risk deportation.
Turner-Cray seamlessly weaves a multitude of characters in this 5 star gritty but ultimately uplifting story, of a northern girl taking a trip of a life time, while discovering and defining her true authenticity and surviving to tell the tale.
"Gorgeous…agonizing adventures… this show speaks powerfully for the thousands of young women being transported and trafficked across the planted today."
