A new play about a smart and sassy young woman led into a life of prostitution in a foreign city far from home. Luck Kirkwood's drama takes the reader on a luminous journey that explores the life of Dijana Polancec: professional romantic, eternal optimist and accidental prostitute.

Review:

Perky and heartbreaking in almost unwatchable equal measure... the sort of performance that, were it happening on a West End stage, would sweep up every award going. --Evening Standard

A play about trust and loss of trust, vulnerability, exploitation and the way in which optimism and romantic aspirations can oil a trap that ruins lives. Dijana sustains this monologue alone for two thirds of the play... It is stunningly accomplished. --British Theatre Guide

Unflinching... theatre that provokes in the best way, without lurid melodrama or sentimentality, but with wit and tenderness... demands that we watch and listen. --The Times

A powerful, genuinely distressing, physically unsettling and yet also inventive theatrical experience that shines a torch beam into the corners most people would rather not look. --Music OMH

About the Author:

Lucy Kirkwood's first play Tinderbox premiered at the Bush Theatre, London in 2008. In the same year she provided material for the same venue's 50 ways To leave Your Lover and Hedda a reworking of Ibsen's Hedda Gabler. Both Hedda and Tinderbox are also published by NHB
