About School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play

“Here she is, Miss Ghana…” Pretty, popular Paulina longs to hear those words, and she’ll do whatever it takes to seize the crown. But the queen bee of the Aburi Girls Boarding School didn’t count on her reign being threatened. Ericka arrives from America and immediately challenges the ruling class with Western sensibilities and imported beauty products. With hilarity and insight, Jocelyn Bioh’s award-winning comedy dissects how “mean girls” are created—and cured. Fresh off two sold-out, extended Off-Broadway runs, this play is sure to strike a chord with anyone, anywhere, who has ever been a teenage girl, raised a teenage girl, or met a teenage girl.
