HERE SHE IS, MISS GHANA at Roundhouse | *Vote 411*
Here she is, Miss Ghana… Pretty, popular Paulina longs to hear those words, and she’ll do whatever it takes to seize the crown. But the queen bee of the Aburi Girls Boarding School didn’t count on her reign being threatened. Ericka arrives from America and immediately challenges the ruling class with Western sensibilities and imported beauty products. With hilarity and insight, Jocelyn Bioh’s award-winning comedy dissects how “mean girls” are created—and cured. Fresh off two sold-out, extended Off-Broadway runs, this “ferociously entertaining morality tale” (Hollywood Reporter) is sure to strike a chord with anyone, anywhere, who has ever been a teenage girl, raised a teenage girl, or met a teenage girl.

September is Voter Registration Month. The League of Women Voters’ Vote 411.org campaign, the 2020 One Woman One Vote Festival, and theatreWashington are bringing voting information to theatre patrons across the country and especially to inspire voting-age women in a historic year. 2020 is just around the corner — a major election year and the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment giving women the vote. Look for an information table in the lobby for this performance.
