Spoonface Steinberg

by Lee Hall
Opening Night 09 October 2003
Director: Lewis Ablett-Kerr

Spoonface is the moving and thought-provoking story of an eight year old, opera-loving, autistic girl who also suffers from terminal cancer. Never self-pitying or sentimental, Spoonface struggles to come to terms with life and death. Throughout, her perception of events around her is acute, even if her thoughts are at times jumbled.

In her bedroom, Spoonface questions and investigates her world, echoing the words of her parents, Mrs Spud, the cleaning lady and Dr Bernstein, her doctor.

"Spoonface Steinberg" is a poignant, exhilarating and ever-hopeful monologue in which we learn to appreciate the beauty in the world, in humanity and in adversity.
