Connections 2018: When They Go Low
Natalie Mitchell began writing this play when the prospect of woman leading the free world seemed a sure thing – then things changed.
Social media goes into a frenzy over pictures of Sarah at a party on the weekend – no one knows quite what she got up to. When Miss Reef lectures the girls on taking more responsibility for their actions, Louise becomes enraged that the boys who took the pictures have nothing to answer for. She wages war on the misogyny but when she threatens school stalwart Scott and his claim to the School Captain title, things get very nasty. A website appears, rating the girls on their appearance and shaming them for their actions.
A play about everyday feminism and the changing face of teenage sexuality in an online world. When they go low, we go high.
