Archival image from Smith College, inspiration for the world of the play.

An underground basketball court. Girls in long skirts play feverishly, insulting each others' mothers. An air of sleeplessness, dark circles. Feels like a secret ritual seen through a thick dark haze.

 

Vendetta, a late bloomer at a Victorian girls' school, must save her friends and her family from a legacy of trouble — and it's all in the dance moves.

Workshop production at Clubbed Thumb. Productions at Ohio State University, Emerson College, Sarah Lawrence College, Purchase College/SUNY. Supported by a Jerome Fellowship from the Playwrights Center in Minneapolis.

Full-length play. 9W !! + 1M. 80 minutes with dances.
