the good girl

She has one job – to care for an elite robot prostitute. He is the maintenance man who repairs it. The Good Girl is a black comedy set in the future. It’s about sex and ambition and getting ahead. Whatever it takes.

‘Emilie Collyer’s The Good Girl is the show that made me notice it. Ballardian. Sontagian. Like a post cyber punk Gertrude Stein.’
‘Smart, slick and funny, The Good Girl reveals a future that asks a lot of questions and gives the present (and the people watching it) a lot to answer for. Clear, complex, crystallised story: big ideas, with an even bigger heart.’
'Collyer’s witty two-hander merges black comedy with the absurd and the political, using sharp, well observed and funny dialogue.'
