Immerse yourself in theatre along with two girls navigating juvenile court. The complexity, confusion, and conflicts are almost comical.
Student actors from SDSU's School of Theatre, Television, and Film, and SDSU's Guardian Scholars work alongside faculty and local theatre professionals to present a performance of an experimental new play developed in Playwrights Project's Telling Stories program.

This was not our first live theatre presentation but is our favorite so far! The clearly defined characters made it very easy to follow and identify with ... great way of dealing with an important topic...
An excellent production!
