Evan Placey’s award-winning 2013 play is a controversial and incisive look at the relationships and interactions within a group of teenage girls in the modern social-media world. The “St. Helen’s Girls” have been together since their first year at Primary school, where they knew they would be “friends forever”. And, despite the trials of growing up, they still believe it; until a photo of one of the girls, Scarlett, is posted online … naked. The dynamics in the group change almost instantly. Will they stick by her, or turn against her, not wanting to be associated with “girls like that”.
With flashbacks to women from the 1920s, 1940s, 1960s & 1980s, who struggled in their own ways against male intolerance and sexism, the play raises questions about how far women have really come in their fight to be accepted as equals. Despite pro-women’s rights movements and increased legal protection in the last hundred years, how far have attitudes to female gender stereotyping, both from men and women, really changed?
