About Thin Mints
“Friendship is supposed to make you happy! All the girls in the manual look so happy!”
"Thin Mints" scores 100% on the Bechdel Test and offers a warped perspective on the consequences of a community governed by abuse and manipulation. Each performance will be followed by a brief discussion with members of the creative team.
Ellen Steves originally wrote the play in 2016 under the tutelage of Lynn Nottage, David Henry Hwang, and Chuck Mee at Columbia University. Steves and director Sacramone joined forces in late-2018 to continue its development which included a sold-out reading in January 2019 at The Boxcar at Steep and a reading in Prop Thtr’s Church of the New Play Series in May 2019. This workshop production marks the next step in "Thin Mints" development.
