School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play
170 N. Dearborn Street Chicago
School is back in session! This biting and buoyant comedy was playing to packed houses when our stages went dark-and you won't want to miss its triumphant return. As the reigning queen bee at Ghana's most exclusive boarding school sets her sights on the Miss Universe pageant, a new student unexpectedly changes the game. This "nasty-teen comedy, wonderfully refreshed and deepened" (The New York Times) spotlights the universal similarities-and glaring differences-of teenage girls around the globe. Casting note; Adhana Reid, formerly an understudy on this production, replaces Katherine Lee Bourne in the role of Ama.
