Lost Girl

Lost Girl

From award-winning playwright Amy Lever comes Lost Girl, a solo play exploring family and the expectations of womanhood through the lens of Jewish-Arab heritage. Birdy is 19. She's too old to beat boys up in the playground or skip maths. But she wishes she wasn't. Until, by chance, she unearths a family secret. One that's been buried since 1930s Cairo. One that her grandfather would rather stay hidden. But for Birdy this might be her chance to right the wrongs of the past, and prove maybe she isn't so useless after all? 

Biting, funny and moving, the worlds of early 2000s girlhood nostalgia and biblical gothic horror collide in Lost Girl. Although fictional, the show was inspired by a family secret Lever’s 97-year-old Middle Eastern Grandma had been keeping for years that has allowed Lever to reflect on both her Jewishness and lost Arab heritage.
