Double Bill: Girls Like That | The Panel

Abbey Theatre, Wednesday 13th February - Saturday 16th February 2019

A double bill of Girls Like That by Evan Placey and The Panel by Zinnie Harris.

Girls Like That
When a naked photo of teenager, Scarlett, goes viral, she becomes the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons. As rumours run wild and everyone forms an opinion, Scarlett is vilified, not only by boys, eagerly sharing her image, but also by the close-knit group of girls who have been her friends since the age of five. She tries to stay silent, but the battle lines have been drawn and the arguments rage around her, creating intolerable pressures.

The Panel
The last of the candidates has just left the room, the clock is ticking, there's a train to catch and an all-male panel must decide who to appoint. But what is really motivating them and whose agenda will prevail when choosing the successful applicant? In the course of this dark comedy, a panel of unreconstructed men reveal their own deeply sexist attitudes as they debate the shortcomings of a series of women candidates.

Up against the unforgiving medical establishment he courageously refuses an out of court settlement, believing it is negligence that has condemned a young mother. Smelling a cover up, he instead takes the case and the entire legal system to court. Set in the Irish enclave of Boston in 1980, this is
