Clare Barron’s explosive off-Broadway smash finally arrives in the DMV to kick off Olney Theatre Center’s 2022-23 season! The pre-teen dance team from Liverpool, Ohio is primed for competition, but 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: Jasmine Brooks, Louis Davis, Megan Graves (The Thanksgiving Play), Shubhangi Kuchibhotla, Ashley Nguyen, Susan Rome (The Joy That Carries You), Erin Weaver, Michael Wood (Disney's Beauty and the Beast).


Content Advisory: strong language, sexual content.
