I’m not going to be that girl” is a thing young women say nowadays. A lot. Like, too much. It’s even a hashtag. But who is That Girl? While exploring this question throughout the process of creating our sketch show, we found out: she is all of us, and she cannot be avoided. In a post-Sex and the City world where it’s not unusual anymore to be an outspoken, independent, sexually free woman, where do we go from here? This revue’s sketches explore that question by highlighting the female characters that many of us strive not to be, that modern society tells us we should avoid being.
We invite you on this journey to help us find That Girl as we delve into her issues, dilemmas, confusions, sexcapades, explorations, stiletto sufferings, mistakes, tears, cake eating, fake confidence, and moments of pure, self-assured strength. After years of vague insults and unabashed mockery, That Girl has a lot of shit she’s been wanting to say. So come listen.
