Paper Doll



“And that darn Barbie. Her ethnic-less face and skinny body are enough to throw me over the edge. I wasn’t a stupid kid, I knew I’d never look like Barbie.”

Against the backdrop of a painting by artist, Riva Lehrer, Tekki takes the audience on a childhood odyssey of inappropriate comments, fear of dolls and puppets, and the healing that takes place when a girl finally discovers her own identity. 20 minutes in Length.

Paper Doll was performed at Hadley Junior High School in Glen Ellyn, Martin Luther King Lab School in Evanston, U.S. Railroad Retirement Board Disability Awareness Day, Girl Scouts of America: More Alike Than Different Day, Missouri State University and Live Bait Theater.
