Girls Like That

Placey's eye-opening, often uncomfortably honest play... deserves to be widely seen by teenage audiences. And by their parents too. The Guardian
[Tackles] strong, relevant issues... a well-written, immaculately crafted and brave piece of energetic theatre. A Younger Theatre
An urgent, powerful and haunting examination... I can see this play becoming a very popular resource for 16+ groups and that will be no bad thing National Drama. Drama Magazine

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.
