GIRLS LIKE THAT

by Evan Placey

A Project1-lowres-7527_edited_edited.jpg

An urgent and explosive play that explores the pressures on young people today in the wake of advancing technology.

When a naked photograph of Scarlett goes viral, she becomes the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons. Battle lines are drawn, girl against girl. But while rumours run wild and everyone forms an opinion, Scarlett just stays silent…
 

Grounded in reality, the play poses an urgent question: how did the generations of women who fought for the vote, equality of opportunity, rights in the workplace and for control over their own bodies give birth to daughters who are so insecure, judgmental and unsisterly? Is this what feminism is now?


Performed by a chorus of six young women, Girls Like That offers a glimpse into the lives and minds of teenage girls in this viciously funny, flinty, and sparkly staging of Evan Placey’s eye-opening, often uncomfortably honest play.
Named Best Play for Young Audiences at the Writers' Guild of Great Britain Awards 2015.
