GIRLS LIKE THAT

Av Evan Placey
15 maj 2018 

For information in English, please scroll down.

En nakenbild på Scarlett börjar spridas på skolan och med lavinartad hastighet tar ryktena fart, mobilerna går varma. Scarlett blir utfryst, brutalt avklippt från tjejgänget hon har växt upp med eftersom hon blivit ett hot mot deras sköra gemenskap. Hur långt ska det gå innan Scarlett säger ifrån? Girls Like That är en explosiv pjäs om vänskap, jämställdhet och om de brutala påfrestningar som den digitala världen riskerar att föra med sig.

Evan Placey är en kanadensisk-brittisk dramatiker, uppväxt i Toronto och numera boendes i London. För Girls Like That vann han Writers Guild Award i Storbritannien. Pjäsen spelades för första gången 2013 av The Young REP som del av en festival på The Old Rep Theatre i Birmingham.

I en artikel i The Guardian skriver Evan Placey själv om sin dramatik: 
”Adults, for the most part, have made up their 
mind about the world around them. Young people are still questioning it and making up their own mind. We need plays for young people in order to ask the questions that no one else is asking. To challenge the world as we think we know it.”

”It’s viciously funny and it poses an urgent question: how did the generations of women who fought for the vote, rights in the workplace and for control over their own bodies give birth to daughters who are so insecure, judgmental and unsisterly? Maybe change starts with plays like this.”
– The Guardian, ur recension av uppsättningen på Unicorn Theatre, London

girls like that

The problem with girls like that is they ruin it for everyone. The problem with girls like that is they give all girls a bad name.

When a naked photograph of schoolgirl Scarlett goes viral, rumours spread across smartphones 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 adolescent female
friendship, gender equality and the pressures on today's digital generation. 

Evan Placey is a Canadian-British playwright who grew 
up in Toronto and now lives in London. Girls Like That won him the Writers Guild Award in the UK. The play was first performed in 2013 by The Young REP as part of the Young Rep Festival at The Old Rep Theatre, Birmingham, UK.
