In May 2019, SpeakEasy audiences watched Sabrina Victor play Ama, a student of Aburi Girls’ Boarding School vying for the title of Miss Ghana in Jocelyn Bioh’s School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play. Now life imitates art as this November, Sabrina will travel to Memphis to compete for the title of Miss USA. For our first #WhereAreTheyWednesday feature, we interviewed Sabrina about her activism in her work as Miss Massachusetts USA and how her background as a performer has served her on the pageant stage.
Meet the cast of School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play!
WINNER! 2018 Lortel Award for Best Play! Paulina’s reign as the haughty ‘queen bee’ at Ghana’s most exclusive boarding school may be over when Ericka, the daughter of a local cocoa tycoon, transfers in from Ohio for her senior year. Throwing unsparing light on questions of ambition, deceit, and the ultimate value of a fair-skinned complexion, this biting comedy by Jocelyn Bioh reinvents the American “Mean Girl” genre to explore the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage women across the globe.
