Presented by Isobel Rogers
Elsa’s ‘money job’ is in a coffee shop while she pursues her dreams on the side. As she drifts in and out of the characters who come into the cafe, Elsa is confronted with different characters (from literature and reality) and she begins to lead the lives of Nina, Miranda, Lillian and Grace in her head. Keeping a part of herself elsewhere through song, Elsa plays a trick on a world that keeps telling her how to ‘be’.
A play on the open mic format, Elsa brings a sense of humour and theatricality to the everyday, telling us to laugh at what we should be doing, revolt at the rat race and seek comfort in our imagination.
