Dance Nation by Clare Barron
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.
