A new play about the front lines of normal life.

Suzie’s at the top of her game. She’s devoted the best years of her life to reporting from the dangerous front lines all over the world.

But even the most resilient foreign correspondents need to come home one day. What happened to Australia while she was away? And what happened to her?

A ratbaggy, wise play by a writer who’s seen it all first hand, and has learnt how to ask the pointed questions.
I’m sure everyone’s familiar with Sally from her work at the ABC. She’s lived more than most of us would if we had several lifetimes. And her play is a remarkable debut. It’s about our complicated world, and it’s full of heart.
– Eamon Flack

Stop Girl is the proud recipient of the Blake Beckett Trust Award.
