Lark Play Development Center | 2008
Inspired by the 2003 murder of a lesbian teenager in Newark, NJ, SHE LIKE GIRLS is the story of two inner-city high school girls who fall in love in a dangerously homophobic climate. The play was part of the Lark's 2007 Playwrights' Week festival; the Lark presented a BareBones® workshop production the following spring.
Cast: Audrey Esparza, Kimberley Gregory, Amelia Workman, Taifa Harris, Jennifer Joplin, Jared McNeill and Maria-Christina Oliveras.
BareBones® are simply staged, fully rehearsed public presentations of plays in the final stages of development. A BareBones® is the culmination of a comprehensive development strategy and 100 hours of rehearsal in advance of the public presentations.
