Event Details

It’s 1983. Jess is 17. Her teenage rebellion is a roller-coaster through Auckland’s underground ‘80s scene, culminating in a crisis that could change the course of her life. Tessa Mitchell plays herself, her teen alter-ego, and various characters.

This multi-media extravaganza promises a wild romp through 1980s counter-culture you won’t forget.

A semi-autobiographical collection of monologues written by Tessa Mitchell, Girl You Want is a rumination on memory, teenage rebellion and female rites of passage.

The show draws on text from her original collaboration I Wanna Be Na Nah Na Nah Nah which received The Auckland Fringe Award.

‘Tessa’s open-hearted warmth and relaxed, frank expression is effortlessly captivating and highly entertaining.’
– Theatreview

‘In under an hour, Mitchell covers more emotional ground than most shows do in 90 minutes.’
– Theatrescene
