the tragic ecstasy of girlhood
90 MINS | 6W
A poetic drama centered on the lives of six teenage girls who live in a residential care facility--not an orphanage, juvenile detention center, mental hospital, or rehab facility--it is all of the above merged into a single institution. A new play about girlhood that demands our attention be on the youth of America who are forced to raise themselves in the shadows.

For years Bridgette has been avoiding painful memories by traveling the country with her eccentric, yogi family in an old RV, selling soap. When they stop in a small Texas town believed to harness great magic, she strikes up a romance with a young dreamer named Danny that causes her to question her responsibilities to herself and to her family. A new coming of age tale about love, sacrifice, and one woman's discovery of her felt sense of agency.
