Introducing Girl E - the third play in the Blade Trilogy by Clifford Oliver
From gangster’s moll to the honey in the honey trap, young women have been involved in gang crime since the concept began. Some are willing participants, others may see little or no alternative. Whether we see them as victims or perpetrators, many of these women experience unimaginable levels of physical and sexual violence. Girl E, the third play in the Blade Trilogy and commissioned by British Transport Police, examines what it’s really like for the girls involved.
Arc’s Blade Trilogy by Clifford Oliver represents a journey of work exploring some of the most hard-hitting issues affecting young people, the community and our society today. From youth violence and gang crime, to loyalty, trust and abuse, each play has been developed through talking with young people about their personal experiences. Each performance and workshop programme for ages 12+ offers an opportunity to explore difficult themes in a safe space.
