A ticket to see School Girls; Or, the African Mean Girls Play, by Jocelyn Bioh and Lotte Wakeham, will get you access to a critically acclaimed production of hilarious and uplifting comedy. This comedy play takes place at an all-female secondary institution in 1980s Ghana and examines the power dynamics and ideals of beauty that existed there for young women. The drama revolves around the competition for the title of Miss Ghana and the numerous conflicts that develop as a result of the candidates' efforts to win the crown. Identity, race, and self-esteem are some of the topics discussed in the play, along with the wider cultural and socioeconomic factors that shape individuals and communities. The play is an insightful and moving look at the pressures placed on young women to conform to unrealistic ideals of beauty and success. Its message of rejecting conventional beauty standards and embracing one's uniqueness is profound.
The protagonists are a group of young girls training for the Miss Ghana Beauty Pageant. Paulina, our protagonist, is the current class president and pageant queen. But when a new girl named Ericka enrolls at the school, she immediately becomes the center of attention due to her lighter complexion and Western features, threatening Paulina's position as the most beautiful female in the school. Friendships are challenged as the ladies face the realities of their own prejudices and the societal pressure to adhere to Eurocentric beauty standards as the competition heats up.
