Tosh and Lou. 22 scenes.

Other friends have come, got boyfriends and gone.

They’ll never be like the other girls. They won’t sit in a narrative someone else thought up.

Scenes with girls by Miriam Battye premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in January 2020.

Critic Reviews

Amazing… A play that’s every shade of lovely… Battye rips away the padding that makes relationship stories boring, pinpointing the most painful bits with one biting word or look or phrase.

Time Out
Critic Reviews

Stingingly fresh… I can’t wait to see what [Battye] does next.

Daily Telegraph
Critic Reviews

A breath of bracing air, a real insight into the lives of the girls it depicts. It's terrific.

What’s on Stage

Refreshingly original and dazzlingly exciting.

A perceptive study of female relationships… deeply in tune with the preoccupations of my generation.
