The teen-comedy gets a sophisticated makeover in Mean Girls, Tina Fey’s hilariously astute script casting a sardonic look at girl-on-girl politics. Lindsay Lohan stars as the naive Cady Heron, who joins high school for the first time at 16 and soon gets a lesson in psychological warfare, bitchy powerplay and social hierarchies. When Cady befriends queen of the “Plastics”, the beautiful but “evil” Regina George (Rachel McAdams) the two become embroiled in a battle for the role of alpha female and, most importantly, high school hottie Aaron Samuels. Notoriously quotable, Fringe! are holding this screening as a frivolous quote-a-long following 2012’s all dancing, all singing In Bed With Madonna, hosted by East End drag legend Holestar. Come along and test your knowledge of this razor sharp foray into the perils of high school with likeminded Mean Girls fans!
Dress up as a Plastic, bring a page from your Burn Book and run the Fringe! Mean Girls Pageant with totally fetch prizes for the winner.
