'Girls Like That' by Evan Placey

  Directed by Warren Cathrine and the Cast

   Evan Placey's 'Girls Like That' explores the issues and repercussions surrounding a very modern dilemma: the distribution of a sexualised image of a young woman through texts and social media. In doing so, it not only asks us to examine society's attitudes to both young men and young women in the present day; it intersperses the protagonist's story with those of her ancestors, raising questions of how much or how little has changed over the last century.

   The play is written almost entirely as a chorus, which leant itself to a Brechtian style of performance: the performers portray different characters throughout the show, including those of a different gender.
