    by Clare Barron
    Directed by Margot Bordelon

    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 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. Zizka is thrilled to bring Dance Nation to the Wilma stage. She notes, “Clare’s storytelling is unexpectedly hilarious, tender, ferocious and insightful about the wonderful and terrible complexity of girlhood.”
