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.

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

The Black Martini Theatre aims to give their audience something different and The Good Girl by Australian playwright Emilie Collyer with her provocative writing delivers on that.

A tight, funny, and engaging sci-fi script with great performances from Larson and Perron. Poses some fascinating questions on both the age-old topic of prostitution and the nascent issues surrounding AI sentience and service. Expertly paced and performed.

The Good Girl is a fantastic show set in a not-too-distant future that would have made Rod Serling or Isaac Asimov proud; however, it elevates to something more and new when it also explores the definition of human love.

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.
