FEMALE Festival 1st Scene Reading: DOLLY DAYDREAM, by Natasha Langridge-Thorpe

Katie’s misbehaviour at her fifteenth birthday party causes her Mother to send her to West Side Academy, a boarding school for young ladies. However, Arnold Hemingworth, the headmaster, enforces strict rules over his pupils. Katie’s reluctance to follow these rules causes her to get into trouble and she becomes isolated from her submissive peers. One of the rules prohibits girls from speaking to their family members. Nonetheless, Arnold makes an exception of allowing one girl at a time to visit her family if she conforms to the rules. Nevertheless, Katie discovers that Arnold’s exception comes with a sacrifice.
