Evita Ioannou

Dark Vanilla Jungle

The confessional, hysterical testimony of Andrea who, abandoned by her own parents and abducted as a schoolgirl sex slave, throws herself at a wounded soldier and loses her baby in a dark and dangerous forest. She plays the audience on three sides like an incantatory harpy, pleading for attention, unraveling her story in an explanatory yowl, as if addressing a convention of doctors and psychoanalysts. She is ready to tell the truth now. If only you will listen.

This stunning monologue is a tale of abuse, pain, loneliness and the greatest love anyone ever knew. Brutally human and intensely passionate. This is an all too familiar case history of a young girl with nothing to give but love and nowhere to find it. Written by the award winning writer Philip Ridley, translated and directed by Evita Ioannou, the part of Andrea will be played by Elena Kallinikou.

Andrea keeps getting asked if she’s ashamed… Ashamed of what she did to the soldier… Of what she did to the baby.

But Andrea’s not ashamed at all… And she wants to tell you why.
