  • Overview
    Three young girls, isolated from parents who are absent due to their jobs, are cared for by a Nanny who gives them security by feeding them with myths. These prove facile when adolescence imposes boundaries on their growth and fulfillment. The play explores innocence turned to tragic cynicism, the naivety of childhood turned to despair.
