By special arrangement with Dominie Pty Ltd, Queensland Academies Creative Industries have had the incredible opportunity to work with renowned director, actor and trainer Steven Mitchell Wright, Artistic Director of The Danger Ensemble. Under Steven’s daring, exciting and challenging direction, Year 10 Theatre students will be staging Evan Placey’s urgent and provocative contemporary piece Girls Like That.
“When a naked photograph of Scarlett goes viral, she becomes the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons. 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?”
The play brilliantly explores the pressures on young people in today’s digital generation, peer and social relationships and teen gender equality. Specifically commissioned by Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Theatre Royal Plymouth and West Yorkshire Playhouse, the play was developed through work with young people from the three theatres and first performed by their youth theatre companies in 2013.
