The pre-teen dance team from Liverpool, Ohio is primed for competition, but in Clare Barron’s explosive script the stakes are much higher than just a first place trophy. Lives are at stake, future happiness lays in the balance, emerging sexuality strikes with the power of a thousand lightning bolts, and every interaction in the tight-knit group is suffused with threat, risk, and the urgency of adolescence. Adult actors of all ages portray the girls (and one boy) amidst their tween confusion and as their future adult-selves in a dream play with moments of true terror, complete with fangs, blood, and wild, stylized, dance.
Featuring Shubhangi Kuchibhotla, Megan Graves, and Tracy Lynn Olivera.
Content Advisory: strong language, sexual content.

“Conjures the passionate ambivalence of early adolescence with such being-there sharpness and poignancy that you’re not sure whether to cringe, cry or roar with happiness.”The New York Times
