"Schoolgirl Figure" Continues Through 2/15
Meredith Ensemble Theatre's production of “Schoolgirl Figure” by Wendy MacLeod, continues through February 15. Remaining performances are February 12-14 at 8 p.m. and February 15 at 3 p.m. in Studio Theatre of Jones Hall, on the Meredith College campus.
Playwright Wendy MacLeod will attend a reception following the Saturday, February 14 performance, and will lead a talkback session following the February 15 matinee.
“Schoolgirl Figure” features a high school where the in-crowd is the thin-crowd. The death of the ur-anorexic Monique, queen of the Carpenters, kicks off a scramble for the crown, and the school’s hottest hottie, The Bradley. Renee, with the help of her bulimic best friend Patty, is determined to claim the crown by outfoxing her rival Jeanine and taking her body back to its pre-puberty contours. Let the diet wars begin! According to “The Washington Post”, “Playwright Wendy MacLeod’s bitter black comedy is . . . sick. It’s perverse. It’s irreverent. And it’s hilarious.”
Tickets are $10 general admission and $5 for students. To reserve tickets, contact the Meredith College Box Office at (919) 760-2840 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
