Two plays exploring the pain of living and the difficulty of dying by a new teenage sensation.

Juniper''s Whitening

"Tell me this-is it true that if you make someone die, and they come out the other side, it doesn''t matter? I''m sure something clung to Lazarus. Something must''ve shone through him."

In Aleph, Beth, and Juniper''s nightmare house, kindness is entrapment, and resurrection is a weapon. Aleph lovehates Beth, Beth lovehates Aleph, and all Juniper knows is that Beth can''t seem to stop being murdered.

Victimese

"I was thinking, Eve, that you need to touch bottom-just so you know you can do it."

Eve is unable to leave her student room but can''t bear staying in it. By harming herself, she hopes to demonstrate her independence. But her sister''s arrival and need for her friendship forces her to face painful truths about the cost of her own emotional courage...

Helen Oyeyemi was born in Nigeria in 1984 and moved to London when she was four. She is an undergraduate at Cambridge University. Her first novel, The Icarus Girl, was published by Nan A. Talese in June 2005. This is the first publication of her plays.
