Younger sister Christine just discovered an alien near the skatepark across from her house and totally can not tell anyone! Older sister Aimee is preoccupied counting down the days until the loss of her virginity while simultaneously stuck in a deep blue sea of beer-chugging, pimple-faced weirdos. Both sisters are finding, however, that whatever sexual appetite their tiny teenage hearts are yearning for is cosmic, insatiable, and definitely intergalactic.
this world is for the frat bros i s an independently produced project by UCLA theatre students (mainly undergraduates). The ensemble of twiftfb aims to create as much visibility as possible to the story, ensemble, and audience by producing to no profit. This project is also designed for the ensemble to gain exposure and build tools in creating theatre independent of an educational environment. To the ensemble, this world is for the frat bros is a manifesto to create theatre that is magical, unapologetic, androgynous, seemingly impossible, and a space for women to take up.
