The American blues-influenced rocker singer Janis Joplin died at the young age of 27 – thus the title of this exciting monologue drama. Joplin is resting in the afterlife, sharing the story of her life and her career: From the upbringing in Texas to the wild days in San Francisco. It is a troubling story about an increasing alcohol abuse which took her life in the end, but also an extremely interesting portrayal of an eventful time in the late sixties. Símonarson’s text is delightfully uncomplicated writing and is a dream for a younger actress.
