How easy it is to disappear when no one is looking for you?


Hannah is 32, single and slightly overweight. Hannah has eczema and lives alone with a cat named Cupid. Hannah reads the love messages in the computer magazine religiously, hoping one day, one day, there will be one just for her.

But when Hannah goes missing while waiting for a mystery man at a Sydney train station, her friends and family are left to question whether their actions played a part.

Meanwhile, the investigating detective is discovering just how easy it is to disappear when no one is looking for you.

Girl in Tan Boots by Tahli Corin is a delicate and funny play about love, loneliness and the struggle to stay visible in a big, busy city.

Girl in Tan Boots was first performed at SBW Stables, Griffin Theatre Company, Darlinghurst on March 27, 2013.

ISBN: 978 1 925338 03 4


"Griffin Theatre's latest production, Girl In Tan Boots, could be a clichéd crime story but comes out as a hilarious yet poignant look at loneliness in Sydney."

Time Out, Julian Ramundi , 2013

"Girl in Tan Boots is a delicate and funny play about love, loneliness and the struggle to stay visible in a big, busy city."

Griffin Theatre

"Is this play a satiric comedy about a certain Generation-Y sense of entitlement and their lack of acceptance to the consequences of their actions? Is this a moving melodrama concerning the experience of the survivors around the loss of family members? Is this play, a piece of sleight-of-hand magic realism (there are magic tricks subtly integrated into the action: Bruce Glen, Magic Consultant) with metaphysical overtones? It could be all of this. It could be."
