In School Girls, Paulina, the reigning Queen Bee at Ghana's most exclusive boarding school, has her sights set on the Miss Universe pageant. But the arrival of Ericka, a new student with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of the pageant recruiter — and Paulina's hive-minded friends. This buoyant and biting comedy explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe. How far would you go to be queen bee?

Zenzi Wiliams, Latoya Edwards, Mirirai Sithole, Myra Lucretia Taylor, MaameYaa Boafo, Abena Mensah-Bonsu, and Paige Gilbert make up the complete cast of Joceyn Bioh's School Girls; or, The African Mean Girls Play.
