Singapore Repertory Theatre

Girls Like That

16 - 19 Dec 2021 | KC Arts Centre – Home Of SRT

Trigger warning: bullying, shaming, strong language

"Girls got to stick together,right?"​

After a photo of Scarlett goes viral, rumours spread like wildfire as her “friends” retweet and repost, threatening her reputation and turning the friendship toxic. ​

They grew up together, but is one bad photo enough to turn them on one of their own?​

An urgent and explosive play that explores the toxicity of social media, Girls Like That shines a spotlight on “cancel culture” and how young friendships can conform to herd mentality in a search for identity and belonging. An important play about social media, navigating relationships and mental health.

Girls Like That was first commissioned by Birmingham Repertory Theatre, Theatre Royal Plymouth and West Yorkshire (now Leeds) Playhouse and performed by their youth theatre companies in 2013.

"An urgent, powerful and haunting examination.” ​– National Drama (UK), Drama Magazine

"Placey's eye-opening, often uncomfortably honest play... deserves to be widely seen by teenage audiences. And by their parents too." ​– The Guardian 

“The combination of script, performance and direction is an intoxicating one.” ​– Toronto Star

Captioned performances are designed to cater to d/Deaf and Hard of Hearing patrons. In a captioned performance, the actors' speech and technical cues, such as sound effects and music, will be described with text displayed on a screen(s) located near the stage. The trained captioner will operate each show live to ensure they adapt to the unique elements of each performance. Seating is specially allocated to provide an optimal view of the performance and the caption screen(s). 

Sign Language Interpreted performances are designed to cater for Deaf or Hard of Hearing patrons. In a signed performance, there will be a trained interpreter, who will be placed in a visible position on or near by the stage. The interpreter will sign all auditory elements of the show using Singapore Sign Language. Seating is allocated for each signed performance to provide an optimal view to both the show and the interpreter.  

Relaxed Performance is designed to allow patrons a more ‘relaxed’ theatre environment. The lighting and sound cues are adjusted to be less startling, patrons can exit and enter the auditorium at any time and a designated quiet space is made available.
