We are especially looking for young African American and Latinx actors who are also members of the LGBTQ+ community for our production of “She Like Girls”, but ALL are welcome.
Please prepare a poem, short story or monologue to recite. We will also have cold readings from the script.
Kia Clark has dreamt of Marisol Feliciano since the start of the school year, but always assumed that she was staunchly heterosexual (like everyone else in their neighborhood). While supporting Marisol through a health crisis, the two share a forbidden kiss that starts a fulfilling — but challenging — romantic relationship. Straining to keep their involvement a secret from their conservative mothers and their gay-bashing classmates, harassment from even their closest friends escalates, forcing Kia to choose between her newfound sexuality and societal acceptance.
Kia Clark – 16 years old, African American, a little rough around the edges but very compassionate
Marisol Feliciano – 16 years old, Latina, a little abrasive but very charming
Andre – 17 years old, Kia’s best guy friend; tries a little too hard to be hard
Regina Clark – late thirties, African American, Kia’s mother
Mr. Keys – late thirties, Kia’s English Teacher
Alia – 16 years old, African American, a gossiping classmate
The “Butch Brigade”
LGBTQ Support Group Members
and Poet, Adrienne Rich
