Half-hearted waitress and aspiring actress Elsa works in a cafe, 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 dominated by social pressures and personal brands.
Through character comedy and satirical songs covering the contradictions of slut shaming to Instagram envy, Isobel Rogers explores cultural stereotypes and what lies underneath. With her intricately lyrical songwriting, Rogers finds deeper meaning in our everyday obsessions and aspirations, questioning what it means to be a young woman today.
