Synopsis

No sooner do we leave the womb than we’re bombarded by society’s expectations about gender. If you’re a boy, you’re like this. If you’re a girl, you’re like that. Through scenes and monologues that range from hilarious to heartbreaking, this one-act explores how these expectations affect teens’ daily lives. Whether it’s how they dress, the rules of dating, body image, parental pressures or a host of other ways, the teens of this flexible ensemble reveal how gender expectations affect them and how they “role.”
