Greengirl is a work about a heroine unformed; an objectionable protagonist who elicits our empathy because she is you, she is me, she is everyone who has ever wanted to be more than they actually are. She is Hamlet's Ophelia: fresh, clumsy, naive. She is Genesis's Eve: tempting, desirable, wicked. She is the mess we make, the love we desire, the self-sabotage we perform, the ugliness we see in ourselves, and the good we desperately want to be.
