Description

A night exploring the grimy underbelly of a girls’ night out. The perils of creepy dudes, lad culture, and general unwanted attention face almost every girl when partying, so why aren’t we talking about it? Using verbatim testimony and drawing from real news stories, we explore how this affects us all. The subject matter is dark and deeply human but is tackled in an entertaining and hopeful way, making this a performance everyone will enjoy. Expect stupid dancing and patriarchy-dismantling from Brighton-based theatre company, Girl Code. Winner of the Pebble Trust Brighton Fringe Award.

I so badly wish that everyone in the entire world was able to witness this masterpiece of true honesty. It's such a shame that the message of this play has to still be said in today's world but I'm glad that all of you were able to add humour at appropriate times but also have sensitivity to the hard truth. Thank you so much for putting on this amazing performance!!
