Splitz deserved to win. Missy stole first place. Set in the cutthroat world of high school gymnastics, this play follows the Friday-night exploits of four teenage chums as they seek revenge for a loss on the vaulting horse.
In MacArthur’s GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! we meet a rag tag group of pals that will stop at nothing to find their place back on top. Come for the highschool trivial drama and scandals, stay for the piercing and heartbreaking emotional reality of this world, these characters, and the state of our youth in society.
Told in a hypnotic, rap-meets-nursery-rhymes style, this play, is brutally violent as it explores what happens when emptiness becomes the norm, the struggle for power and control rules over everyone, and as Peter Hinton says, “in GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS! we feel for the young killers as the inevitable result of a society that both worships and devours its young.”
A British Columbia Premiere, Greg MacArthur’s arresting script is in response to the events surrounding the brutal death of Reena Virk in Victoria, BC, and by the Columbine massacre in Colorado, USA. In the world of GIRLS! GIRLS! GIRLS!, we see the characters on a journey that every youth goes through in one way or another – from powerless child to powerful adult – and as such it is a story that we believe everyone will relate to.
Come to the Havana Theatre from July 19-22 & 25-29 for 8:00pm performances nightly and help support piercing, daring, and authentic stories being told by local emerging and independent theatre artists.
