Girls Like That by Evan Placey is an explosive and emotive play which explores the pressures on young people today in the wake of technology and social media. Our version will be directed by Nina Green.
When a naked photograph of Scarlett goes viral, she becomes the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons. But while rumours run wild and everyone forms an opinion, Scarlett stays silent. Meanwhile the play explores the insecurities of those who have a lot to say. The play is funny but it is also gritty with a serious message which is relevant to today.

Flour Babies is a riotous comedy … when the annual school science fair comes round, Mr Cartwright’s class don’t get to work on the Soap Factory, the Maggot Farm or the Exploding Custard Tins. To their disgust, this class of underachievers is assigned to spend three torturous weeks taking care of their own “babies” in the form of bags of flour, but one boy Simon makes some amazing discoveries about himself, while coming to terms with his long-absent father. We are delighted to welcome April Nash to EYT to direct this hilarious play.
Class: Constance Lam, Elliott Christopher, Emma Kerridge, Imogen Howard, Iris Glade, Joel Swash, Martha Woodhall, Romana Li-Rocchi, Tabitha Hammond, Tyler McLaughlin-Madden
Teachers: Charly Nash, Charley Nicol, Dan Herman
Bad Girls is an energetic, fast-moving dramatisation of the book by Jacqueline Wilson, which will be directed for us by Charley Nicol.
Mandy has been picked on at school for as long as she can remember. That’s why she is delighted when cheeky, daring, full-of-fun Tanya picks her as a friend. Mum isn’t happy – she thinks Tanya is a ‘bad girl’ and a bad influence. Mandy is sure Tanya can only get her out of trouble, not into it … but can she?
