BREAKDOWN

These girls have aplay. Each has learned her part. The playing style is modern, quick, unaffected – the girls never pretend to be boys – they are, however, fully committed and present in the stakes of the characters they inhabit. They believe so fully in character that they are capable of losing themselves. Each wears her school uniform that has a cape with hood, a blazer, skirt, blouse, tie – and individually chosen socks and shoes. The tartan print is a nod to Scotland but we are in America – where school violence is so common as to be horrifyingly banal. Every prop in the show comes from the backpacks and purses they carry on with them. The fighting is intense and full-on, no stage blood or weapons are used but the girls hurl themselves at each other and revel/excel in committing pretend murder. Once a girl enters, she never exits the stage – tho she may exit the scene, she is always present, watching.
