Pinky Swear - Geordie Theatre

Pinky Swear

By Kalale Dalton-Lutale
Directed by Mike Payette

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.
