Edith Can Shoot Things and Hit Them begins performances tonight at Boston Center for the Arts. The play is a coming of age story that centers on Edith, her brother Kenny, and a giant stuffed frog. Orphaned, with hardly any food, and no money, 12-year-old Edith and her brother are "doing just fine, thank you." The two live by their own rules, but everything changes when Kenny makes a new friend named Benji, who provides him with more than just mix-tapes. Edith may have to shoot something for real this time.

Directed by Shawn LaCount and written by A. Rey Pamatmat, the show features Maria Jan Carreon as Edith, Gideon Bautista as Kenny, and Eddie Shields as Benji.

The creative team includes Cristina M. Todesco (set design), Rafael Jaen (costume design), Jen Rock (lighting design), Ed Young (sound design), and Kevin Deane Parker (stage manager).

Performances will run through June 27.
