WINNER! 2018 Lortel Award for Best Play! Paulina’s reign as the haughty ‘queen bee’ at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school may be over when Ericka, the daughter of a local cocoa tycoon, transfers in from Ohio for her senior year. Throwing unsparing light on questions of ambition, deceit, and the ultimate value of a fair-skinned complexion, this biting comedy by Jocelyn Bioh reinvents the American “Mean Girl” genre to explore the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage women across the globe.

RUN TIME: Approx. 75 minutes with no intermission.
