The Chicago Mosaic School

Bobby Pin Girls tells the story of Ana and Bree as they are forced to do some rapid bonding over the course of a wild night. Ana is an uptight actress struggling to convince herself to stick with a show she not-so-secretly despises while navigating mixed signals from her director. Visual artist Bree attempts to boost her new roomie's self-confidence while dealing with her impulsive and reckless ex reentering her life. Will the toxic people in their lives bust up this burgeoning friendship or will the girls learn to embrace their evolving identities?

Chicago Reader - Highly Recommended

"...What's most fun and surprising here is the comedy, from verbal jabs to physical, that punctuates the heavy scenes. Hutchings and Modaff in particular offer raw performances that also manage not to take themselves too seriously-as Bell writes, "Every error is an opportunity to laugh." This is sloppy, slapstick, and set to a memorable soundtrack of up-and-coming local musicians. Ben Kaye directed."

Windy City Times - Highly Recommended

"...Not Without a Company stages its production in an actual apartment located above the Chicago Mosaic School, decorated with the splashy murals characterizing artistic environments. ( Playgoers are seated against the walls like unfinished works-in-progress. ) Closet and bathroom retreats are actual rooms, the lights are toggle-switch household lamps and, if you listen closely, you can even hear the El next door. Under Ben Kaye's non-intrusive direction, Grace Hutchings and Emilie Modaff replicate the vocal mannerisms of earnest post-grads to the smallest inflection. All these elements make for a portrait of youthful lifestyles in 2017 so authentic as to deserve enshrinement in a time capsule."

"...With a strong production team and cast, this show was able to unpack important topics on relationships and discovery. While the script's overall message can be elaborated, the team's work paid off to produce a witty, relevant and enjoyable production."
