February 7-12, 2023

Directed by: Arthi Chandra

Co-created by: Emma Abbott, Danica Kobayashi, Olivia Manojlovic, Jenna Leigh Morgan, Marielle Ortinez, Alyson Vance, Marianna Zouzoulas

Stage Managed by: Yorlene Bernido and Carol Chu


As young women, we are raised wanting to succeed in a world that isn’t built for us. Where certain ideas of success can hold the potential of upholding oppressive social structures; we call this the girlbossication of female empowerment. We’re here to redefine what it means to be a "girl", and we’re getting loud and making messes in the process.

Enjoy the party, destroy gender-norms and smash the patriarchy. We’re burning down this f*cker and becoming our own gods now.

Girlhood 4 Dummies was initially developed in the Theatre Arts Program/Studio 58 at Langara College as a project for Fourth Term Students in 2023.
