Elinor Cook’s (Killing Eve, Series 3) Microwave is a new play which boldly explores the anxiety and awkward hilarity of academic and sexual pressures on teenage women as they try to carve out their own identity. The play is about the friendship between 15 year old Kelly, straight A student, girlfriend of the hottest boy in the school, captain of the lacrosse team and excelling in awide-range of extra-curricular activities, and Carly - who is homeless and earning money through prostitution. Their intense and immediate friendship, sparked on a park bench outside Kelly’s school, spurns both girls to try out different identities whilst grappling with who they are and what they want from their lives and relationships. Microwave poses a thought-provoking and compellingexploration of ‘how the other half live’ through the lens of teenage female friendship, whilst opening a wider discussion around how we educate and support teenage women in the 21st century.
