Real-life mother and daughter star in the premiere of a resounding new show about growing up online and IRL.

Screenwriter and actor Sarah Boddy takes the stage alongside her teenage daughter, Lola Gonzalez Boddy, and stunning actor Emma Rattenbury.

The Secret Lives of Sixteen-Year-Old Girls is a contemporary coming-of-age tale across generations. Sharp, awkward and funny with a gut-punch; honest experience and cutting realities form this powerful new play about our digital age.

When almost anything is available from your smartphone, where – if anywhere – is truly safe? And what does that mean for parenting? An inter-generational cast and crew delve into the secrets, sex politics, and Snapchat accounts of being sixteen.

“Sarah has a singular ability to find emotion and love and profound humanity in places where lesser writers would only find darkness.”– Michael Bennett, Screenwriter

Content Warning: The Secret Lives of Sixteen-Year-Old Girls contains sexual assault, violence, and reference to self-harm. The play deals with mental health, drug use, sexual violence toward a teenager, and an experience of the criminal justice system.
