Like a Virgin is Play by Gordon Steel – The story is about two teens Angela and Maxine and their eternal struggle to become pop stars. With the bumble gum fluff of their daily life comes a dash of hard hitting reality in the shape of Angela’s depressed mother Viv who has never recovered from her husband leaving her.
Viv hasn’t been much of a mother to Angela since Ken left but is forced to face her responsibilities when Angela is diagnosed with Leukemia.
This play is so much fun, Angela and Maxine are such a great representation of what best friends can be and Maxine provides so much self absorbed, teenage,very female humor.
Like a Virgin is a funny, sad, tragic tale about what it means to be a young girl, let down and what it really means lose everything.
