#GIRLHOOD Play

My solo show #GIRLHOOD debuted at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019 at the Gilded Balloon Rose Theatre Attic. The show was a hit with audiences and critics, and we’re excited to be touring it in Spring 2020. Details coming very soon…

This female-centred solo show explores the joy and pain of growing up through the eyes of a Scottish millennial. Join GIRL, as she journeys through the experiences that challenge and shape her, including an awkward teenage romance, her first holiday without her parents, and a toxic relationship. Punctuated by seminal pop music from the 00’s, Hepburn’s performance deconstructs and satirises the milestones, conventions and pressures that girls and young women face. #GIRLHOOD is ultimately about finding those people who will help you survive the lows, and dance in celebration with you on the highs. It puts a young, female voice to the forefront, and is simultaneously nostalgic, hilarious and heartbreaking.
