Tickets to see SCHOOL GIRLS; OR, THE AFRICAN MEAN GIRLS PLAY presented by SpeakEasy Stage Company!

From May 3 - 25, 2019, SpeakEasy Stage Company will proudly present the New England Premiere of the critically acclaimed Off-Broadway comedy, SCHOOL GIRLS; OR, THE AFRICAN MEAN GIRLS PLAY by Jocelyn Bioh. Winner of the 2018 Lortel Award for Outstanding Play (tie), SCHOOL GIRLS "is a sardonic look ... at the mirroring of plastic aspects of America's beauty culture" (Washington Post). The play takes place in 1986 at Ghana's top boarding school where Paulina, the school's reigning "queen bee," has her sights set on representing her country in the Miss Global Universe Pageant. Things change quickly, however, with the arrival of Ericka, a new student from Ohio, who, with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of both the pageant recruiter and Paulina's hive-minded friends. Throwing unsparing light on questions of ambition, deceit, and the ultimate value of a fair-skinned complexion, this "gleeful African makeover of an American genre" (The New York Times) spotlights the universal similarities and glaring differences facing teenage women around the globe. Two-time Norton Award-winner Summer L. Williams will direct SpeakEasy's production of SCHOOL GIRLS. A co-founder and Associate Artistic Director of Boston's Company One Theatre, Ms. Williams has directed the local premieres of Miss You Like Hell; Leftovers; Wig Out!; Barbecue; Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again; An Octoroon; Colossal, and SpeakEasy's 2016 production of Bootycandy.

SCHOOL GIRLS will run for four weeks, from May 3-25, 2019, in the Roberts Studio Theatre in the Stanford Calderwood Pavilion at the Boston Center for the Arts, 527 Tremont St. in Boston's South End.
