But all the anxieties and confusions of the adult world come sashaying on stage, revealing a dog-eat-dog drama. The girls are played by adult women, as if they’re reliving past agonies and triumphs.
This is a comic play of memory and feminist power, and a subtly
subversive exploration of the time of life when the demons get in.
This came out of America and has taken the world by storm.
Theatrically playful, unapologetically ratbaggy, with a great ensemble
of adult performers playing the teen dancers, this one promises to be as
intriguing as it is entertaining. – Eamon Flack, Artistic Director
