What Kinds of Stories Are Your Patrons Hungry For?
Last week we featured an article highlighting more diversity on local stages. This week, we’re spotlighting Diep Tran’s American Theatre article about plays about teenage girls, which are currently playing or scheduled for later in the year.
Tran writes, “These three plays making a splash around the country [Dance Nation, The Wolves, School Girls] is enough to give the American theatre a much-needed burst of estrogen.”
Tran continues: “If I can leave plays like Dance Nation, The Wolves, and School Girls feeling 10 feet tall and ready to take the world in my hands and crush it, just imagine what a teenage girl would feel. She would see that it’s okay to be loud, okay to be rough, okay if her body isn’t stereotypically perfect — okay to be exactly who she is.”
