Joe Iconis ("Be More Chill") returns to Two River with this world premiere musical about love and rebellion among teenage girls in a 1960s juvie hall. More…
From the show:
"Joe Iconis is “…The Future of Musical Theater.” – The New York Times
A turbulent rock romance set in a 1960s Juvie Hall, Love in Hate Nation uses classic “bad girl” movies as the inspiration for the story of young people caught between eras of a changing America. Sixteen-year old Susannah Son is carted off to the National Reformatory for Girls to get her head put on straight. There she meets the aggressively incorrigible Sheila Nail, and a relationship forms which leads to an all-out “revolution in the institution” as they attempt to break out of the boxes society has created around them. Girl Group Wall of Sound harmonies are filtered through a punk rock spirit in this rebellious and romantic new musical.
