Amy's living the dream - a country hideaway, online home-working, and everything delivered right to the door. There's little reason to go beyond the garden gate ever again. She's even found romance on the Internet. High tech, long distance, low maintenance. Except he's real, and he's on a plane somewhere over the Atlantic. Meanwhile, neighbours Dan and Rose are living the nightmare. With so much space, how come there's so little room to manoeuvre? And they can't help feeling jealous of Amy...'Nothing is beyond the garden. Nothing important. Nothing I need. Nothing I care about. Nothing I can handle. OK? Happy now? Cos I am. I sure am.' "Gorgeous Avatar" is a kind of love story for the digital age. A first play by a new writer, it premieres on the main stage of the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, the powerhouse of new Scottish playwriting.
