we actively promote ourselves and Girls act good wherever we can
“La Mama debut for Taradale”
“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?”
“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.”
“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."
"A shortage of roles for female actors led to the founding of Girls Act Good, a Melbourne-based collective dedicated to providing opportunities for women by women."
"Jennifer Monk wants more stage and screen roles for women"
"The actor and producer who has featured in notable productions including the television show Offspring, has created her third film as part of her work with Girls Act Good (GAG) – a company she founded in 2013. "
"As an actor, I know what my personal process is and how to jump in head first, but as a first-time director I was a bit bamboozled as to where to start. So I came back to what I respected from directors I had worked with in the past—I am very conscience of people’s time and wanting to get the best out of them so I went from there."
"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!"
A LADY SHOT
"This is an all female show but the ability of the performers to imitate the cultural tropes of men and masculinity is insightful."
“The performances so excellent as to make the naturalistic style of presentation seem so easy, familiar and very real.”
“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’”
"A Group of women are creating their own productions to bridge the equality gap on stage and screen."
"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 in Secret Premiere"
Lady Shot' at La Mama
"This new work takes on great historical and classical women, throwing them into modern settings to test their relevancy to today's audience."
"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"
"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."
