9781840023268: Girl on the Sofa (Modern Playwrights)

A girl sits on a sofa, not knowing what to do with herself. She argues with her mother and envies her older sister. She also longs for her absent father, a seaman. A middle-aged woman paints a portrait of herself as a young girl, sitting on a sofa, but she's beginning to doubt her artistic ability. Still at odds with her sister and her mother and haunted by her dead father, she's unable to shake the continuing presence of the past in her life -

Review:

"brilliant - Paradoxically, it creates something of great aesthetic beauty out of a work that deals with painter's block" - Guardian
