Fifteen year old Braidie knows that bullying is wrong, but her best friend persists in
picking on Sophie, an innocent, awkward girl who just wants to belong.
Can Braidie break free of the mean girls that were once childhood friends and
stand up for what’s right?
The Shape of a Girl is a dynamic one-woman play that examines the frightening realities of teenage relationships, aggression and a young woman’s battle with inaction.
As told through a series of conversations, memories, and events in Braidie’s world, award-winning Canadian playwright Joan MacLeod has created a stirring portrait of a teenager struggling at home and in school.
Ultimately, Braidie must decide whether there is such a thing as an innocent bystander, and whether the penalty of speaking up will be too high a personal cost.
“Gripping one-woman show.”
