Roundabout Theatre Company will present the world premiere of Usual Girls by Ming Peiffer as part of its 2018-19 Roundabout Underground season. Tyne Rafaeli directs the production, for which dates, casting, and additional information are still to be announced.

Usual Girls is described as follows: "How do girls grow up? Quickly, painfully, wondrously. On an elementary school playground, a boy threatens to tell on the girls for swearing — unless one of them kisses him. But just before lips can touch, Kyeoung tackles the boy to the ground. The victory is short-lived. Over the coming years, Kyeoung's stories get stranger, funnier, more harrowing, and more familiar. This hilarious, explicit, gut-punch of a play bursts with playwright Ming Peiffer's bold, explosive voice."

Usual Girls launches the 2018-19 Roundabout Underground season at the 62-seat Black Box Theatre at The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
