It’s a song, isn’t it, Good Girl? It’s a couple actually – there’s one by Carrie Underwood and another by Christina Aguilera, as found in the musical film Burlesque. The latter probably fits better. But this Good Girl is not about to take her clothes off on stage. It’s more about a comically frank discussion around sex, masturbation and vaginas. Oh, and witchcraft, and popularity. All told through the perspective of a group of girls growing up in the 1990s.
Not a family show then! Maybe not, but one that honestly opens the debate around mental health, identity and the need to conform to stereotype. Naomi Sheldon’s Good Girl chooses to be numb, then to live without apologising for herself. What is the cost of both choices?
It sounds quite dark. In some ways it is. But it’s also a dark comedy – director Matt Peover has previously worked with comedy gems like Jayde Adams, Nick Helm and Nina Conti. So, between him and Sheldon, there’s bound to be lots of laugh out loud moments in there.
When and where can I catch it? If you haven’t caught it already, it’ll be at Trafalgar Studios from 5 March 2018. Last year it was at the Old Red Lion Theatre twice and then up at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where it won Voice’s Pick of the Fringe award. It started this year with a run at VAULT Festival too.

Naomi Sheldon stars as GG in her writing debut GOOD GIRL, a feminist journey from 1995 to the present day. The show could benefit from more creative direction, yet it remains an ardently acted one-woman piece that beckons the audience to question; why are women forced to fit in, be good or behave? GOOD GIRL begins to explore the isolation that we face from not always being exactly like everyone else.Read more
