On the last day of school, Bailey and Zanele meet up in the girls’ washroom to determine if they have been accepted into the same middle school. What follows is a beautiful coming-of-age story – set in real time - of two young women considering separate paths and where politics of gender, race, and class come to the surface, revealing an unconditional friendship that is put through the ultimate test.
“They loved the fact that they felt that the play was more mature and directed at older (teen) audiences.”
“Great play, (the students) really enjoyed it. Lots of discussion.”
“The actors did a wonderful job! The topics were meaningful & realistic.”
Pinky Swear is currently touring across Quebec, Ontario and the Maritimes. Over 7 months the play will have traveled an average of 28,000 km being performed over 100 times to more than 15,000 teens.
