Abstract

The play tells a story of three sisters who are abandoned in the woods and challenged by their Father to find what is important to them. Armed with only their knowledge, curiosity and instinct, Albienne sets off in one direction to find purpose, Beatrice ventures the other direction to find adventure and Carmen remains with the intent to create a home. This Girl Laughs, This Girl Cries, This Girl Does Nothing is a moving and delightful modern-day fable that tells the story of three young girls who become women by choosing to encounter the world in their own distinct way. Albienne with Cake, Beatrix with the Sun, and Carmen with her Backpack, each embark on a tale of magnificent magical realism to discover what life has to offer and what they can offer back. In a story that is irresistibly playful and charming, This Girl Laughs… also offers a depth and complexity to the idea of the female heroine that ultimately results in an empowering, visceral experience.
