“Just because these stories are dark, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be heard. I think of them as real stories rather than dark. Girls Act Good have always shown a light on real stories and these ones need to see the light,” says Monk.
“The performances so excellent as to make the naturalistic style of presentation seem so easy, familiar and very real.”

“Last Breath sees a member of GAG writing and performing a to-camera one-hander, and – in every instance– utterly disappearing into the character of woman driven and defined by violence.”
“Girls Act Good, an all-female troupe, generate their own material – with all the risks that implies. But here Jennifer Monk keeps things rolling along, the cast is immensely likeable, the show has that elusive thing ‘heart’”
“Things to see to get you in the Christmas spirit. Sure, Christmas is all about spending time with family and friends, but what better way to bond than over a great show or gig?”
“Tonight we are joined by Jennifer Monk, Founder of Girls Act Good will be sharing new Web Series, Last Breath and two-part theatre immersive and short feature project, The Association.”
“The shadow of the gallows looms large over the women of Last Breath as they await their fate. What will they say in those final moments, before their fate is determined?”
"The Association is a brilliant and quirky short film made with heart, and Girls Act Good have really worked hard to make it happen."

"There are some experiences in life you cannot explain - you simply have to be there. The Association is one of those experiences. So, get yourself a ticket quickly, numbers are limited and see this show and the house!"
"After a successful theatre run, the team behind The Association - the all-female film and theatre collective Girls Act Good (GAG) - are working away at a film version"
"A Group of women are creating their own productions to bridge the equality gap on stage and screen."
"Jennifer Monk wants more stage and screen roles for women"
"Girls Act Good in Secret Premiere"
"This isn't so much a review but a recommendation. If you want to see something that allows a break from the normal rigours of cold theatres, huge audiences and Melbourne's plague of overly internalised, apologetic performances...then go see this!"
"Girls Act Good is a collective of talented women who should be more widely known and widely seen. In this production – an ‘immersive theatre’ evening, directed by Lee McClenaghan – Perri Cummings and her collaborators have come up with a show that is at once inventive, creepy, satirical and witty."

"This new work takes on great historical and classical women, throwing them into modern settings to test their relevancy to today's audience."
"This is an all female show but the ability of the performers to imitate the cultural tropes of men and masculinity is insightful."
