★★★★ “It’s viciously funny; Maybe change starts with plays like this.” – The Guardian
A naked photo of Scarlett goes viral. Rumours spread across smartphones like wildfire and her reputation becomes toxic, threatening to shatter the clique of girls she has grown up with. But how long can Scarlett remain silent? And why isn’t it the same for boys? Girls Like That is an explosive new play that explores the evolution of feminist consciousness and modern female friendships in the wake of advancing technology.
Approximate running time is 1 hour and 45 minutes with no intermission.
Please note, the show contains water-based haze effects.
