Kiera, Zainab and Lucy are smart, outrageous and savvy. They've figured out that there are some things school sex ed lessons don't cover. Now, as they grow from girls into women, they're going to find the answers...
But nothing ever happens in their town, and they’re fifteen, so what do they know?
By turns funny and poignant, their experiences as they grow from girls into women shine a light on contemporary desire, the pain we feel and the lengths we go to…
Informed by the rise in violence in mainstream pornography and the ‘rough sex defence’, Playfight interrogates the dangerous reality of the hyper-sexualisation and exploitation of young people.
