Synopsis

The explosive and conversation-starting debut from a stunning new talent, exploring themes of consent and power, abuse and victimhood, memory and how victims can reclaim their voices.

The last time Rachel saw the girls, they were teenagers island-hopping in Greece- making friends, finding love. One golden summer.

Now in her thirties, she's never been able to forget the man she fell in love with back then. Even though he is almost twenty years older than her. Even though she hasn't seen him since and she's now married to someone else.

And when she crosses paths with one of the girls, she's confronted with a truth that's much darker than she ever realized.

What really happened to them all that summer?

What if everything she remembers is a lie?

The Girls of Summer is a compulsive and searching exploration of the complicated nature of memory and trauma, power and consent, victimhood and shame.
