June July August is a coming-of-age story set in the Junior Counselor Bunk at an all-girls summer camp that explores critical moments of no-turning-back that these teenagers experience as they transition from childhood to adulthood. The play explores the strength and resiliency of teenage girls, and how the layered relationships play out between them as they test their ideas of who they are and who they are becoming. The production is part of an annual commission by Waterwell that is written specifically for the actors in their senior year at the PPAS drama program.
