Shoot: Verdun || Model: Jennifer Roberts

BRAIDIE: And there we are. A group of girls – just like me and Adrienne and Jackie and Amber. A group of girls with hair and jeans and jackets. They are not waving, they are drowning . And this group of girls on TV just starts waving, right on cue. Weird I’m thinking. This is highly weird.

And what feels even stranger is that the picture is actually clear for once, from the neck down at least. But their faces are blurry, smudged, almost as though someone has taken an eraser and tried to rub them out.

The Shape of a Girl was first produced by Green Thumb Theatre in Vancouver in 2001.
