Hot House

Dystopian crisis rages outside a garden of Eden greenhouse. The girl grown there to save the world yearns for anything else. Guilt, repression and sense of self are explored in this hot-housed coming of age, experimental drama.

“Cabbages. Cabbages… Cabbages. Cabbages. Green. Grow. Still. Sow. Stagnant. Fragrant. Feelers. Creeping across soft skin. Bring face to the sun. Heat lamps. Sun. Feet still in the soil when skin’s in the sky.”
