It’s Hell to Be a Girl

Linda Daugherty offers a sobering look into the destructive world of bullying. She sheds light on what it’s like to be a middle-school girl surrounded by gossip, exclusion, backstabbing, eating disorders, depression and cliques. Based upon interviews with girls who either bullied or were bullied, The Secret Life of Girls follows Abby, a young girl who struggles to gain acceptance on her school’s volleyball team. Daugherty brings the play to life revealing the challenges young girls face today through cyber-bullying and text messaging, portraying the complexities of life in a humorous and heartbreaking manner. If you have a daughter, the play is a must-see. If she’s at least 12 years old, bring her with you. Sunday’s 4:30 p.m. performance is the final show at the Dallas Children’s Theater, 5938 Skillman St. For additional showtimes and tickets ($20 to $24), visit
