About this event

Nessa and Carly are modern ladies studying and working hard. A two-women girl gang, they know their literature and films and can make a mean macchiato, which comes in useful at the comic book cafe where they work. But being a realist is tough when you are surrounded by books full of dreamy ideas, and geeky co-workers who mistake a smile for flirting.

Our ladies bemoan their comic book counterparts, oversexualized servants of the plot. Most hated is the Manic Pixie Dream Girl, both for her sad fate as a plot device and the unrealistic expectations she leaves real women to fill.

Then they meet Morgana, stunning as a fae queen, with no apparent past and seemingly token interests. Surely she cannot be real and must be investigated.

Are characters literally walking from comic books?
