"Controlling social cliques, oppressive beauty standards and cut-throat competition. Yep, sounds like high school! In Jocelyn Bioh’s comedy, though, these familiar dynamics play out at an exclusive Ghanaian boarding school, where issues of skin color and colonialism are added to the brew — then the pot is stirred by a light-skinned transfer student from America and a recruiter for the Miss Ghana Pageant. The city’s largest theater company’s, Portland Center Stage and Artists Repertory Theatre, team up to co-produce this 2018 winner of the Lucille Lortel Award for outstanding Off-Broadway play." – Oregon Arts Watch
