§ Dramatis Persona Kimberly (f) 18-30, a Barbie-like doll, alluring and sexless all at once.
§ Synopsis“Companion and confidante, Kimberly is the best dollfriend a girl ever had. Or so it's been. Kimberly hasn't seen Morgan for a couple of days and she's beginning to feel insecure about her status as top doll. As Kimberly reveals details of their special relationship, she exposes dark, disturbing secrets of a father/daughter relationship gone wrong, secrets a doll shouldn't have to know.
§ Comment “This one-scene, provocative monodrama has no special requirements, other than the actress playing the role should be 18-30. • Production history:
'A riveting exercise in dramatic irony . . . smartly crafted and deftly performed.'--Beverly Hills Outlook, Beverly Hills, California, U.S.A."
‘While telling the story with a child’s innocence and inherent honesty, the doll projects an eyewitness account of a father’s abuse that challenges the audience to consider the consequences of certain parent-child relationships . . . .’—The Ryder, Bloomington, Indiana, U.S.A.”
