Girls Like That by Evan Placey

A naked photo of Scarlett goes viral. Rumours spread across smart phones 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?

Girls Like That is an urgent and explosive play that explores gender equality and the pressures on today’s digital generation.

Girls Like That by Evan Placey and directed by Esther Baker, was performed by a company of professional and ex-prisoner actors and toured across London schools in October and the Unicorn Theatre from 6 – 22 November 2014.

A free teacher CPD session to accompany the production took place on Thursday 16 Oct 4.30 – 7pm at the Unicorn. Post-show talks followed morning and matinee performances offering audience members the opportunity to ask questions in response to the show during an informal Q&A session with the actors and creative team.
