Being Superficial in Soho
Chipmunkapublishing ltd, Jun 1, 2011 - 104 pages
This is a play about Soho, about its mixture of delight and danger. It revolves around a woman working for a London fashion firm. She enters a state of depression. She becomes attracted to alcohol, she grows unstable, she is unable to easily adapt to her job and the city. Her own background is the conservative countryside. There is nothing nice and cushy about her harassed mental condition. Enter the realm of uncertainty! Money and sex become unpredictable entrapments. She feels as if she is in a pit from which she cannot escape. Depression... it destroys all that is secure and serene. Depression...it is the misery of loneliness and self- destruction. Depression...this is the fate of Jane Tomkin- Tomkin...
