The Girl in the Yellow Dress by Craig Higginson

A new gripping psychological drama, The Girl in the Yellow Dress, centers on a love story set in Paris between two apparently disparate characters, one a UK teacher and the other her Congolese student.

The Girl in the Yellow Dress Reviews

"This gripping two-hander is a highlight of the Traverse programme. Higginson packs a lot in under the seemingly innocuous guise of a young English woman giving language lessons to a French-Congolese student in contemporary Paris"-Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard "Higginson is clearly gifted. He not only filters pressing concerns about race, prejudice and power through a highly charged two-hander, but he wraps it all up in a witty discourse about language itself."-Daily Telegraph "It is unusual and fascinating to see a play investigate the extent to which words can shape our thoughts and feelings as much as vice versa." -Financial Times Exposes some painfully ugly truths about race and class, wealth and victimhood written and directed with great skill "-The Scotsman "Higginson's slick, precise dialogue builds the tension nicely. There is, quite plainly, a formidable intellect at play... this piece challenges our received assumptions about ideology, language and sexuality to strong effect and comes recommended to thoughtful audiences."-The List "Craig Higginson has developed this spell-binding two-hander You'd be hard pressed to find a sexier scene this festival than the shared naked foot stroking that turns nasty, then violent..."-What's On Stage "Full of emotion, and ideas It's erotic, exciting and thought-provoking brilliantly written a winner of a play" 4 stars The Arts Desk "Stylish and compelling deserves to be rewarded come awards season" 4 stars Evening Standard "Takes on everything from racial and class animus to truth versus fiction and the dark heart of desire. A clever two-hander" Time Out "An absorbing study in the potency of language Higginson's script challenges assumptions of race and class with cutting insight . This is bold, thought-provoking work, and a gritty battle of language and power-politics from a vital voice of the modern stage." 4 stars Exeunt Magazine
