Description

A coming-of-age story about falling in and out of love with yourself. Head Girl navigates the 21st century and girl boss mentality, whilst still practising self-care seven days a week. Becca is running in the campaign for head girl at school and running herself into the ground, all with a smile on her face. But who is she doing all this work for? A platonic love story that will be full of adoration and careful ambition. 'Fringe Theatre at its best' (NorthEastTheatreGuide.co.uk). 'In awe' (BBC Radio).

It's not easy to get an audience cheering and clapping on cue on a Monday morning, but these two dynamos and their too-many-to-count characters had us laughing and crying along with them (and yes, cheering and clapping on cue)! Deft use of costumes, accessories, props, and music (kudos to the sound tech) transport us to Becca's sixth form world with its stresses that aren't unlike our own -- no matter our age -- and the remedies of friendship and familial love we all need a reminder to embrace. This show was the perfect feel-good way to finish off our too-short Fringe experience...having gotten ready to depart earlier than expected, we used the daily schedule & venue map to see what was affordably available near Waverley Station (both this show's venues are) and found this treasure. Don't miss it!
