The critically acclaimed, sold-out hit comedy, SCHOOL GIRLS; OR, THE AFRICAN MEAN GIRLS PLAY by Burnt-Umber Playwright in Residence Jocelyn Bioh is back in session for a one-night only virtual event.
Paulina, the reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school, has her sights set on the Miss Universe pageant. But the arrival of Ericka, a new student with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of the pageant recruiter—and Paulina’s hive-minded friends. This 2018 Lortel Award winner for Best Play and New York Times Critic's Pick explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe.
