What’s most impressive about this show is its simplicity in its staging and production. It doesn’t need anything flashy. The words spoken are the main star and I cannot help but be mesmerised by the writing talent that Georgie possesses.
The minute I walked in she was there greeting everyone and was so warm and friendly it felt like I was saying hello to an old friend. I think it’s something that really stuck out and made me focus on the person behind the show, and it gave the whole thing a bit more realness.
Beginning her hour long monologue, the audience is invited on a journey through school along with the perils and pressures of growing up as a girl in today’s society. There are so many highs interspersed throughout this, all with infectious humour being their driving force. But rather impressively, there are a handful of more heartfelt moments about sexual assault and what defines consent that take a much more sober approach, providing a stark contrast.
It’s moments like these - full of rhymes written like tumbling streams of thought - that I thought were, perhaps, this show’s biggest selling point as they resonated the most with me personally.
Whatever you experience was like growing up as a teenager, whether is was in 1970 or 2017 there’s something in this show for you!
