It has the odd dip, but I've given it four stars...this feels like a breath of bracing air, a real insight into the lives of the girls it depicts. It's terrific.'

The Times (UK)
January 22nd, 2020

The play is very 2020 in its wit and gender politics, but its themes are eternal as its young characters try to figure out how to live and how to love...complicated and gripping.'

New play about female friendship is refreshingly original and dazzlingly exciting...Tonight I gasped about five times, then I stopped counting – I was hooked.'

...What could descend into militant, wokey gobbledegook is served by Battye with a scathingly funny light touch...I can’t wait to see what she does next.'

The Guardian (UK)
January 22nd, 2020

Within Battye’s writing is a comic, astute commentary on female friendship...But as it is, Scenes With Girls refuses to break out of the cliches its characters rail against.'

The London Evening Standard
January 22nd, 2020

Lol-versations with friends in Miriam Battye's perceptive study of female relationships...it feels especially insightful in exploring how an increasingly feminist culture oppressively idealises female friendship.'

Time Out London
January 22nd, 2020

The Stage (UK)
January 22nd, 2020

Miriam Battye’s London Royal Court debut is a springy, if wobbly, exploration of contemporary womanhood...Battye’s text is a soup of half-thoughts and scalpel-sharp observations...But the play never fully coalesces.'
