Girl World is a pop-tastic, musical playground where best friends wreak anarchy, hilarity and imagination.
But when Tilly thinks the unthinkable and asks, “is there anybody out there?” Girl World descends into a foulmouthed, sex-obsessed battleground with both girls vying for dominance against each other when they discover there is a hole in their world…
Expect laughter, love songs and brutal wrestling on a journey of genuine friendship between two girls who are growing up.

The Authentic Project
“Dripping with inventive imagery & filled with boundless energy, revealing a brutally harsh side of girlhood that is often forgotten or glossed over.”
What has been of most significance to us when making Girl World is the play’s focus on childhood and the individual and interpersonal development of the characters. It is important to us that the seemingly innocent aesthetic and story of Girl World, which has been described as “a recasting of imaginative free play”, foreshadows a testing ground for later life, where cultural mores and restrictions can be imaginatively negotiated. In this way, although a comedy, Girl World takes on a broader resonance with its audiences and offers a unique contribution to contemporary discussions regarding sexual politics and female development.
