School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play at T2

TheatreSquared’s original production of School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play by Jocelyn Bioh will extend nationwide streaming through March 14, 2021 to meet demand.

T2 continues to innovate in the national streaming field with School Girls joining past, acclaimed, extended productions like The Half-Life of Marie Curie (“inherently dramatic, beautifully staged” – The Wall Street Journal) and Russian Troll Farm: A Workplace Comedy (“Best of 2020” – The New York Times).

“Audience members have written, called our box office, and shared messages on our social media about what a joy it’s been to experience this play,” said T2 Executive Director Martin Miller. “They’ve also asked for more time to share the experience with friends and family. We’re delighted to continue streaming performances through March 14 to share the work of these incredible artists with a broader community.”

Winner of the 2018 Lortel Award for Outstanding Play, in School Girls, “the nasty-teen comedy genre emerges wonderfully refreshed and even deepened by its immersion in a world it never considered” (CRITICS’ PICK—The New York Times).  It’s 1986, and Paulina is the reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school, and has her sights set on the Miss Global Universe pageant. But the arrival of Ericka, a new student from Ohio with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of the pageant recruiter—and Paulina’s hive-minded friends. This buoyant and biting new comedy, twice extended in its acclaimed New York debut, is sweeping the nation’s stages, and has become a cultural phenomenon. 

Access School Girls starts at just $20 and can be purchased online at theatre2.org or by calling 479.777.7477.
