LYT Presents: Girls Like That

Snap. Click. Send.
Easy as that.
Easy. As. Her.
Scarlett the Harlot.
#thecameraneverlies #LYTGirls17

When a naked photo of Scarlett goes viral, rumours ricochet from smartphone to smartphone, her reputation is trashed and her friendships turn sour. When the same thing happens to a boy he’s just one of the lads. Girls Like That explores gender inequality in the digital minefield of young people’s online lives.

YOUNG WRITERS PROJECT: GENDER TROUBLE
As an exciting collaboration between Lyceum Youth Theatre and the Traverse Theatre, Girls Like That will be presented as a double bill with brand new short plays written by the Traverse Young Writers group, performed by members of the LYT.
