Dance Nation by Clare Barron

SF Playhouse

Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they'll claw their way to the top at Nationals in Tampa Bay. Featuring a multigenrational cast of women portraying our pre-teen heroines, Dance Nation is play about ambition, growing up, and how to find our souls in the heat of it all. Winner of the 2017 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and a Pulitzer finalist.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jean Schiffman has to say about Dance Nation by Clare Barron :

In this award-winner by Clare Barron at SF Playhouse, adult women play 13-year-old girls. And why not? Isn’t your teenage self lurking somewhere inside you? These “girls” are competitive dancers and, it seems, holy terrors. When it opened at Playwrights Horizons last year, the New York Times called it “blazingly original and unsettlingly familiar.” The cast includes such local talents as Julia Brothers and Lauren Spencer. Becca Wolff directs.
