Playwright Jocelyn Bioh is a first-generation American whose parents emigrated from Ghana in Africa. This sparkling comedy was inspired by her mother’s experience in an elite boarding school there in 1986, as students prepare to enter the Miss Ghana pageant and a chance to be Miss Universe. Paulina, queen bee of the in-crowd, assumes she’ll win. But when Ericka enrolls, Paulina’s popularity plummets. The girls find out if beauty really is skin deep in this new, critically acclaimed, and award-winning play that sold out two runs Off-Broadway last season.
