Review quotes:

Emilie Collyer’s The Good Girl is the show that made me notice it. Ballardian. Sontagian. Like a post cyber punk Gertrude Stein.
 
Theatre Alive (read full review here)

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.

Herald Sun (read full review here)

The acting is terrific, the concept intriguing ... strong performances and a crisp, fast-paced script

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.

This is the second production from indie theatre company PONY.CHILD. The play is a new work by Melbourne playwright Emilie Collyer (shortlisted Patrick White Award 2013) It's never too late to PONY.CHILD.
