Such a Nice Girl by Jen McGregor
Directed by Angela Milton
Starring Hazel DuBourdieu Raina and Lauren Heatherill
The story tells us of Eilidh who has always been a nice girl. She's caring, she's polite and she's facing jail time. Based on personal experiences of grief and prejudice, faith and violence, Such a Nice Girl leaves no stone unturned.

Well acted, intriguingly written and largely successful, Such a Nice Girl can be counted as another striking contribution to the Just Festival by Black Dingo Productions.
In a short running time the play covers a wide range of themes including grief, prejudices and religion but it never feels overly weighty. Director Angela Milton adds occasional stylistic elements into the proceedings and creates an atmospheric mood piece whilst moulding two exceptionally good performances from the actresses. In the end though, it is Jen McGregor’s thematically rich script that provides ample food for thought by the play’s end.
