Half-hearted waitress Elsa works in a café, eavesdropping on overly-earnest coffee chats, regretful memories of the night before, and exhausting tales of the rat race as she struggles to make sense of a world that doesn't feel like her own.
In this musical comedy, Isobel Rogers seamlessly transitions between character comedy, hilarious satirical songs, and off-the-cuff stand-up to transform into characters who conceal their truth. With her unique lyrical songwriting, Rogers finds deeper meaning in our everyday obsessions and aspirations, asking us to question what it means to be a young woman today.
Rogers is a writer, singer and actress. She graduated from Warwick University with a B.A in English Literature before taking her M.A in English literature specialising in poetry and music and its use in theatre. She has worked as a researcher for Radio Four Drama and has been artist in residence at Camden Roundhouse for two years. Highlights have included sup-porting artist Camille O Sullivan and The Tiger Lillies. She is also a member of The Young Writers Lab at Soho Theatre.

Her ability to turn her musical ears and hands to a blissful mix of satire and performance is truly unique and we look forward to our next project with her" - Jane Beese (Head of Music at the Roundhouse)
★★★★ "A mix of brilliant wit and clever song-writing […] complex, funny, and moving" - A Younger Theatre
