Staged Reading of “Girls Act Out” October 3-6, 2019 at The Center at West Park
Girls Act Out tells the story of five highly competitive teenage girls on the verge of their senior year. During one comically premeditated drunken night, Petra, Squish, Claire, Thea, and Alisha are forced to face their differences, their misaligned passions, and the ways in which they relate (or can’t) to one another. Girls Act Out de- and re-constructs narrative storytelling as a study of the ways girls — consciously or not — perform for each other, confronting questions of race, sexuality, class, relationships and the ever-daunting task of growing up.
