What I liked

I loved the scene between “Little Bitch” and “Big Bitch”. Both were amazing performers, and it made me very emotional to watch. I also loved the set and set dressings— the big eye drawings of Katie Kate made me laugh out loud. Great job from all sides on transporting audiences to a 2010’s middle school.

What I didn't like

I would have liked to see a little higher stakes. Being forced out of the classroom seemed like a huge punishment, and as unrealistic as it might seem, I think there could have been some more genuine fear and anxiety about that consequence. Still, I can’t sing the praises of this piece enough!

My overall impression

This show is hilarious and so real. Watching it, I totally felt like I was watching my middle school friends in real time. Great performances all around and a very funny and creative script! It reminds me of “The Wolves” and I could see this making the rounds in high schools around the country as well as on a professional level. Definitely a great future ahead of this cast, crew, and script!
