About the Show

The reigning queen bee at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school has her sights set on the Miss Universe pageant. But a new student captures the attention of the pageant recruiter – and the previously hive-minded students. Award-winning playwright Jocelyn Bioh’s buoyant and biting comedy explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe.

Contains mature language and themes. Children should be 13 years of age or older to attend this performance.

  • One of the major themes in this play is friendship. How do we treat our friends on good days and bad days? Are we aware of our impact on our friends? A point may come when one friend doesn’t feel like it’s a friendship anymore, unless honest communication happens first. How well do we communicate with our friends?
  • This play also highlights the deep impact of societal beauty standards on those who don’t feel that they meet those standards. Are we actively examining these issues in our own communities? What are concrete things we can do to support our loved ones if they don’t feel like they’re enough?
