in the lounge Gilly Says Hi Created by Leonie Bell
About This Show
Gilly attempts to mother Mama and herself and loses her last belongings on the way. Two strangers compare the insides of their bodies inside the pet lullaby-whale they inhabit, and decide to hold a garage sale. Some people hope that a choir will sing their whale back towards safer waters. A work-in-progress about baggage anecdotes and post-war heirlooms.
