As MCC Theater prepares to move into its new permanent home in midtown, the Off-Broadway company wraps up its tenure at the Lucille Lortel Theatre with a remount of School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play.

Jocelyn Bioh’s acclaimed comedy, directed by Tony winner Rebecca Taichman, began performances October 16 ahead of an October 22 opening night.

School Girls received a critically acclaimed world premiere from MCC last fall, marking actor and playwright Bioh's professional playwriting debut. The play tells a coming-of-age story set in an exclusive, all-girls boarding school in Ghana in the ‘80s.

Paulina, the reigning Queen Bee, has her sights set on the Miss Universe pageant. But the arrival of new student Ericka captures the attention of the pageant recruiter and Paulina’s hive-minded friends.

The cast is made up of MaameYaa Boafo, Latoya Edwards, Paige Gilbert, Joanna A. Jones, Abena Mensah-Bonsu, Mirirai Sithole, Myra Lucretia Taylor, and Zenzi Williams.
