Notes from the writer Issy Knowles 

"I've been modelling so long now it's who I am.'" Model is a quick-witted twenty something who's destined for the top. Or... she was at 15. Aware she's getting on in the eyes of the industry and with fashion week fast approaching, she kicks it up a notch or two. Nothing is going to get in the way this year.
 

 

We follow the highs and lows of a young woman trying to find her way in one of most brutal industries in the world. Juice cleanses, fashion parties, dodgy dates and a line or two- Model Behaviour is a one woman comedy for the modern audience in desperate need of an anti-heroine
