In an imaginary letter to an absent older brother, Braidie struggles to understand the torture and killing of a teenage girl by a group of her school-mates. MacLeod’s young protagonist enters all the bright open avenues of peer-group play and the dark blind alleys of individual and collective terror, as she discovers within herself both the capacity for and the conflict between impulses of good and evil. The Shape of a Girl (2001) was commissioned by Green Thumb Theatre for Young People, and first produced at Alberta Theatre Projects, as part of its playRites Festival, with Jenny Young as Braidie, and directed by Patrick McDonald.

The Shape of a Girl has been produced more than thirty times and translated into eight languages. Joan joined the Playwrights Unit at Tarragon in 1985, and remained as playwright-in-residence here for seven years. 

The Shape of a Girl was first produced at Tarragon in March 2002.
