Roundabout Theatre Company has announced a second one-week extension to the Roundabout Underground world-premiere production of Usual Girls by Ming Peiffer, directed by Tyne Rafaeli. The sold out limited engagement, which was previously extended one week, will now play through December 23.

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."

The cast features Abby Corrigan, Ali Rose Dachis, Midori Francis, Karl Kenzler, Jennifer Lim, Sarah Pidgeon, Ryann Redmond, Nicole Rodenburg, and Raviv Ullman. The creative team includes Arnulfo Maldonado (sets), Jen Schriever (lighting), and Ásta Hostetter (costumes).

The production runs at the Black Box Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theater.
