In this raucously funny 2019 Pulitzer Prize finalist, a competitive dance troupe of pre-teen girls - played by women of all ages - vie for the national trophy. Every plié and jeté hurdles them towards self-discovery. You’ll be moved to tears and laughter as you watch them learn about their bodies and desires, and witness their burgeoning strength through the lens of the women they’ll become.

Fresh off two landmark productions, Dance Nation had its premiere at Playwrights Horizons (included in the New York Times’ Best Theater of 2018) and a successful run across the pond at London’s Almeida Theatre. This self-described “ghost play,” was winner of the inaugural 2015 Relentless Award from the American Playwriting Foundation in memory of Philip Seymour Hoffman and the 2017 Susan Smith Blackburn Prize winner
