THE STORY

"IF YOU HEAR THIS FROM ANYBODY ELSE,
THEY'LL TELL IT WRONG."

TEXAS, 1969. The country is bursting with the vibes of peace, love and rock ‘n’ roll. Fronting a rock band, raising some hell, Jeannie’s a disgrace to her mother and having the time of her life.

​That is, until she’s dragged back to the oppressive small-town values of a home she’s outgrown. Stuck once again out in the remote Texas desert, Jeannie stews behind a locked door, desperate to escape.

This breathtaking new play stares straight at the collateral damage of a life led in search of a legacy, fusing electrifying live music with an extraordinary story that ‘packs a hell of a punch’.

But she has a confession to make first.

THE MUSIC

Set to a soundtrack of classic 60s music, GIRL FROM NOWHERE rocks out to Janis Joplin, the Doors, the 13th Floor Elevators and more, powered by a live band. Victoria Rigby as Jeannie Hogan is 'an electrifying rock chick: confident, sexy and volatile.'

In 2018, acclaimed singer-songwriter Lauren Pritchard (Spring Awakening, Songbird) joined GIRL FROM NOWHERE to compose original music for the production.
