Monologues, Drama / 1f
Julie is an auxiliary nurse, working long hours for a low wage in a Nottingham hospital. She cares for the elderly and feels her own life is passing her by. Clubbing with the girls breaks the routine but Julie longs for some real excitment and a bit of spare cash.
When her new boyfriend buys a camcorder, Julie sees a lucrative new career on the horizon. She's drawn into the world of amateur girls: the so-called stars of home-made pornography on satellite TV and the internet. Yet Julie's new life can't stay secret for long. What begins as a bit of fun becomes anything but.
Based on real stories, Amateur Girl is a hard-hitting, wry yet poignant one-woman play about the reality behind the fantasy business.
