School Girls; or, the African Mean Girls Play

$49 - $125

New York Times Critic's Pick, School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play by Jocelyn Bioh is back in session for an encore run this fall at MCC Theater at the Lucille Lortel Theatre. 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. Directed by Tony Award winner Rebecca Taichman, Bioh's buoyant and biting comedy explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe. Don't miss what the Hollywood Reporter calls, "ferociously entertaining and as heartwarming as it is hilarious" for a strictly limited engagement.
