PRETTY BABY

Metamorhosis Pist

PRETTY BABY

written by Declan Greene
dramaturged by David Mence

When Mrs. Somers awoke one morning from troubled dreams, she found herself transformed into a monstrous woman.

A housewife, for no particular reason, begins to find herself indescribably revolting. To escape her body, she consults a plastic surgeon and undergoes a series of massive physical transformations – slowly evolving into something truly monstrous.  PRETTY BABY is a surreal high-speed mash-up of Franz Kafka’s Metamorphosis, the ‘body horror’ of David Cronenberg, and silver-screen Monster movies, satirising contemporary constructions of femininity and incising into the ‘female grotesque’.
