I'm so happy to be back at Marin Theatre Company this spring for another show in their 50th anniversary season. Here's the blurb for peerless, by Jiehae Park, directed by Margot Bordelon:
Twin sisters “M” and “L” care about two things in this world: academic ambition, and each other. But when M’s supposed shoo-in slot at a prestigious university is given to someone else, the sisters begin to strategize how to secure their success by any means necessary. Taking a page from a certain Scottish tragedy, the sisters' sinister scheming leads to bloody extracurricular activities that could take them to the top. Jiehae Park’s new dark comedy is a savage satire on academia, teenagers and race, and made The Kilroys’ 2015 List of the best new plays by female playwrights.
The cast includes Tiffany Villarin as M, Rinabeth Apostol as L, Jeremy Kahn as D/D's Brother, Cameron Matthews as BF, and Rosie Hallett as Dirty Girl/Preppy Girl. Sean McStravick provides stage management.
Previews begin March 9, with Opening Night March 14. We run Tuesdays through Sundays in Mill Valley -- tix and more info available here.
