Named the Best Play for Young Audiences at the Writers' Guild of Great Britain Awards in 2015, 'Girls Like That' is an urgent and explosive play that explores gender equality and the pressures on today's digital generation.
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?
