Zella Compton / How to be a Girl

March 31.7:30 pm-10:03 pm

Event Navigation

Darkly comic, ensemble theatre at its finest. This startling, unstoppable comedy will leave you feeling raw. How to be a Girl! looks at the pressures which young women face from the media on a daily basis. Presented as a magazine, with a sneak peak between the covers of How to be a Boy!, this show also tells the story of Lily, and of the consequences of too much pressure.

Described as brilliant, terrifying, thought provoking and brutal, How to be a Girl! provides “A large slice of satire, washed down with a good dose of humour.” Fringe Review – Recommended show.

“Don’t miss this show! Help your teenager deconstruct the rubbish thrown at them on a daily basis” Jessica Woodfall – No More Page 3

Brought to you by the director / playwright team Helen Jones and Zella Compton. Jones / Compton have worked together on many productions including Genghis, Five Beaches, and School of the Dead. This is the London premiere of How to be a Girl!
