Girls Like That (Schools Edition)

"The problem with girls like that is that they ruin it for everyone."

Ongoing till end May 2017

Blue Box, M Space, Msida

girls LIKE that is a play that explores the pressures of young people today in the wake of advancing technology. Teenagers and technology collide with terrifying consequences as the play challenges the notions of body image, sexuality and cyber-bullying. These girls have been together since they were five. Now sixteen, and subject more than ever to peer pressure and even more exposed to social media, they react violently when the photo of one of them, naked, goes viral around the school. The toll on mental health and confidence is huge.

THEMES COVERED: The play deals with a number of points mentioned in the teaching handbook of the Social Studies and PSCD curricula such as the concepts of helping others or not, of being part of a group, of having friends or not, getting along with people, group dynamics and promoting decision-making. This plays shows how people should be aware of the consequences of their actions and being aware of the terrifying possibilities through irresponsible use of social media.

A Masquerade Theatre Company Production, the play is written by Evan Placey and directed by Polly March.
