‘The Girl with the Imagination’ tells the story of Mary Ellen, a Princess who lives in a swamp with her father after all their people have abandoned them there. Mary Ellen creates a world of imaginary characters around her in order to help her survive, and the play deals with the psychological benefits and consequences of her having done so, especially when this becomes an even bigger aspect of her life following her father’s death. Ultimately, the play deals with the thin line between madness and the imagination. Told through storytelling, song and visual theatre.
