Girls Like That

Wednesday 4th May


When a naked photograph of schoolgirl Scarlett goes viral, rumours spread across smartphones like wildfire and her reputation becomes toxic, threatening to shatter the fragile unity of the girls she has grown up with. But how long can Scarlett remain silent? And why isn’t it the same for boys?

Placey’s play explores more than just ‘Mean Girls syndrome’. It’s viciously funny, but the bitchiness is grounded in the girls’ insecurities, and it 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, judgemental and unsisterly?
