Elinor Cook's The Girl's Guide to Saving the World is a play about friendship, feminism and what it means to be successful. It was first produced as part of the 2014 HighTide Festival, Halesworth, Suffolk on 11 April 2014.

The play centres on a friendship between Jane and Bella, two young women in their late twenties. Bella has had an idea for a blog which might possibly revolutionise the way women (and men) think about each other. Meanwhile, Jane's boyfriend Toby dreams of babies, buggies, and home improvement, even though he can’t properly look after his cat. As they try to make sense of their uncertain worlds, Jane and Bella find themselves falling out of step.

The HighTide Festival production was directed by Amelia Sears with set and costume design by Jamie Vartan. It was performed by Jade Williams, Georgina Strawson and Ben Lambert.
