“School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play”
By Jocelyn Bioh
Directed by Rebecca Taichman
The MCC Theater production of “School Girls” follows Paulina, the reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school, who has her sights set on the Miss Universe pageant. But the arrival of Ericka, a new student with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of the pageant recruiter—and Paulina’s hive-minded friends. Jocelyn Bioh’s buoyant and biting comedy explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe.
