EAST LANSING, MI ― Braidie, a teenager struggling both at home and in school, tells her story about making the tough choice between standing by while her best friend bullies another student or standing up for what’s right. See THE SHAPE OF A GIRL live in Wharton Center’s Pasant Theatre, on Friday, November 15, 2013. Tickets are $12, plus applicable fees, and are available online at whartoncenter.com, at the Auto-Owners Box Office, or by calling 1-800-WHARTON.
Originally inspired by a 1997 murder of a Canadian high school student, THE SHAPE OF A GIRL is a dynamic one-woman show that examines the frightening realities of teenage relationships, aggression and a young woman’s battle with inaction. Joan MacLeod’s beautiful and tightly written play looks at the way little incidents of childhood cruelty can escalate, and the role an individual can have in stopping it.
Joan MacLeod was born and raised in North Vancouver and is the recipient of two Chalmers Canadian Play Awards and the Governor General’s Award. All of her plays have been produced extensively. THE SHAPE OF A GIRL has been translated into six languages and has toured the United States and Australia. In 2005 it toured the U.S.A. for six months including a two week run in New York City. Joan also writes poetry, prose and for television.
