School Girls

Feb 22 - Mar 17 at Copaken Stage

Paulina is the reigning Queen Bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school, who has her sights set on the Miss Universe pageant. But the mid-year addition of Ericka, a student newly-arrived from America with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of both the pageant recruiter and Paulina’s teenage “squad.” Jocelyn Bioh’s hilarious re-imagining of the Mean Girls story is at once joyful and heartbreaking, bitingly funny and poignant – a loving exploration of the real lives of young African women trying to negotiate the confusion of Western beauty ideals.
