GIRLS LIFE is a hilarious new play about three young growing up in a big city. As Atlanta InTown Paper's Manning Harris wrote, "One could say that 'Girls Life' is a play about angst among the millennials, but that would be too limiting. It’s true that the characters are young people in their 20’s or early 30’s, but the issues they deal with could belong to anyone who is still asking questions, unwilling to settle for conventional happiness. The characters are looking for love in the big city while working through an identity crisis or two." After making its world premiere at Pinch 'N' Ouch in 2016, GIRLS LIFE is back with a vengeance, illuminating the stage with powerhouse performances and poignant writing by Atlanta-native Grant McGowen.

"Grant McGowen is quickly becoming a voice of his generation... [His plays] hit on some important contemporary issues such as social equity, gender equality, and stigma... [They] will make you laugh, but more importantly, will make you think... Pinch ‘n’ Ouch is becoming the hottest theatre off Peachtree that broadcast a voice of a new generation that is not going to take it anymore." -Pure Politics
"They are complicated, real humans... the women are allowed to be funny, powerful, indecisive, selfish, loving, and a bit assholish in a way that rings current and true… all of the characters are interesting and unique… What the play really gets right is the way in which women in particular have friendships that are layered at times with frustration and irritation but ultimately can contain a love and commitment that is often deeper than most of their romantic relationships." -Suburban Apologist
"Girls Life absolutely scores points in style... hip and sexy…The characters are drawn with jagged edges, making them at once familiar and alien…Girls Life highlights some of the ways theatre can challenge us, make us uncomfortable, and ask us to revel in incongruity.” -Edge Media
“...a fine cast who are by turns fiery, witty, vulnerable, defensive, and heartbreaking… there’s a lot of talent here... One thing you won’t be in “Girls Life” is bored. McGowen is holding that old mirror up to human nature…” -Atlanta Intown Paper
