A startling psychological drama about the darker side of modern parenthood.

Behind the shiny door of Hazel Robinson’s immaculate London home, things aren’t as good as they look. Her plastic surgeon husband, Richard, has embarked on his latest charitable mission to Haiti, leaving the heavily pregnant Hazel to cope with a failing business and a problem son. When a professional nanny arrives unannounced on her doorstep, Hazel finds her home under the shadow of a seemingly perfect stranger, and one who has an agenda of her own. 

Nancy Harris’s play Our New Girl was first performed at the Bush Theatre, London, in 2012.

This volume also includes her short play Little Dolls, first performed as part of the Bush Theatre’s Broken Space season in 2008.
