The Squad is a documentary play about the experiences of four recently-elected Congresswomen of color who, through their powerful actions and words, offer points to reflect on the changing role of gender and race in the current U.S. political system.
The script is created verbatim from speeches, interviews, and news sources from and about Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, and Rashida Tlaib.
A 30-minute excerpt, featuring cast members from the BSU community, will be followed by a talk-back with the playwright and director Lisa Rafferty, who teaches in the Theatre Department.
