Hysteria Theatre presents this new comic drama about two high school girls who learn about themselves and each other through rehearsing for their school play. More…
Allegra and Tara meet when cast as Frances Willard and Mary Bannister, two historical leaders of the late-1800s Women's Christian Temperance Movement who shared a very close friendship (and maybe more). Through rehearsals, sleepovers, and communions with Ouija boards, Allegra and Tara explore just how similar - and dissimilar- they are to Frances and Mary.
