Shape of a Girl.jpg

The Shape of a Girl, by Canadian playwright Joan MacLeod, is a powerful one woman show that deals with the grim extent of female bullying and the code of silence amongst teens. Following the news about the Reena Vick murder in Victoria 1997, sixteen year old Bradie becomes aware of parallels in her own life and relationships with her peers. She can see "the way in", how bullying that starts as early as elementary school, can lead to tragedy amongst teens.

In addition to the original one woman version of the play, we received permission from Ms. MacLeod to adapt the script for a limited number of performances with three actors. They represent other characters in the play, as well as Bradie at various ages in her young life. These actors (Eden Nielson, 14; Megan Tracz, 16;, Ari Deiber, 20) each bring a very different perspective as well as experience to the part.
