The world is closing in on 14 year-old Greta Driscoll (Bethany Whitmore, Mental). A teen at a cross roads, she can’t bear to leave her childhood behind because it contains all the delightful things that give her comfort in this otherwise incomprehensible world. Existing in a bubble of security alongside only friend Elliott (Harrison Feldman, Upper Middle Bogan) Greta’s parents decide to throw her a surprise 15th birthday party where she’s taken well out of her comfort zone and flung into a strange parallel world of ludicrous circumstances and twisted logic, a place where only she can find herself.
A colourful coming-of-age tale set in 1970’s Australia, featuring funky music and inspired dance sequences Girl Asleep is a bold journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.
