Medicaid budget cuts end a group therapy for middle school girls, but these girls have some unfinished business with each other. To celebrate their time spent together they host a no-holds-bar “safe space” slumber party, complete with pizzas, makeovers and an intense game of truth or dare. As the night progresses it becomes evident that the therapy is ending at pivotal moments in each of these girls’ lives. Tensions start to rise and teens begin to brawl over eating disorder accusations, and triggers. Jo’s mother, one of the supposed chaperones, overdoses on opioids. These girls must learn how to make space for themselves in a world that will not allow for vulnerability

Schedule:
December 2017 - Table work
January 2018 - Staging rehearsals
Feburary 4,9-10 - Tech weekends (all day)

**Warning: The play discusses but never depicts themes of child sexual abuse.

Annex Theatre strives to create an environment of inclusivity and parity. For this production, we are not only seeking people who carry enthusiasm and investment in the development of new work, but also diverse representations onstage and off in gender, race, and ethnicity.

Lauren: Open- Lolita/nymphet type, 13 years old. Studious and animated. Pretends to be confident, despite all the attention (nice, negative or inappropriate) she receives.

Dolores: Open-Latin American heritage, 14 years. Silly and confident. Is finally at peace with being 14 years old and wants other girls to feel the same way.

Tiara: Black American, 12 years old. Quick Witted and Appeasing. Roommate and foster sister to Casey. Is starting to care less and less about what others think of her.

Casey: White American, 12 years old. Insecure and Confrontational. Roommate and foster sister to Tiara. Is desperately searching for control in her life.

Britney: White American, 14 years old. Plain, yet not normal. Believes she was raised to be the perfect woman. Knows who and what she is.
