Text of introduction by Joseph Planta:
I am Planta: On the Line, in Vancouver, at TheCommentary.ca.
Beginning Thursday, 02 November 2017 is the latest production from Shameless Hussy Productions, Girls Like That. The play, written by Canadian British playwright Evan Placey features a cast of ten teenage performers. The show is about a photograph of one of these students that ends up going viral, and the show portrays the consequences for the girl and the girls around her. The stigma, pain and bullying that girls get in society is explored in this show. Renée Iaci joins me now. She is the director of this production, and co-artistic director of Shameless Hussy. The show runs until November 10th at Templeton Secondary School. Visit www.shamelesshussy.com  for tickets and information. After each performance, there will be a Q&A. Performances are at 7pm. Please welcome to the Planta: On the Line program, Renée Iaci; Ms. Iaci, good morning.
