THE GIRL WHO KILLED THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF (PART ONE) AND (PART TWO) (2014-2016)
THE GIRL WHO KILLED THE BOY WHO CRIED WOLF is a science fiction screenplay and ongoing work that takes the form of printed material and audio installation within an expanded context. The screenplay takes place in the same universe as the 1983 film Born in Flames. The screenplay is set in a not-so distant future in the aftermath of the events that take place in the film Born in Flames (1983). Born in Flames is a 1983 documentary-style feminist science fiction film by Lizzie Borden that explores racism, classism, sexism and heterosexism in an alternative United States socialist democracy.

Currently two parts of the screenplay have been published. Part three will be published in Autumn 2016.
Part One was also included in How To See Clearly From A Distance (2014) by Jennie Guy. The project was commissioned by Galway University Hospital as part of TULCA 2014. Artist Jennie Guy asked a selection of artists and writers to read out texts that they have written, chosen with a particular context in mind. Available online and advertised via posters in the hospital for the duration of TULCA 2014, these voices offered a series of narratives that stray between the mundane and the imaginary, simultaneously distant and intimately present.Contributing artists and writers included: Hu Fang, Fergal Gaynor, Jennie Guy, Russell Hart, Léa Lagasse, Tamarin Norwood, Leila Peacock, Alan Phelan and Frank Wasser.
