Before her 2012 critically acclaimed play Mean Girls made Reneé Rapp known to New York theatergoers, the young writer spent her teens in California as the girlfriend of two rebel, new wave musicians and their subsequent midlife crisis. In the play, she examines the tumultuous year of her childhood, exploring art, creativity, self-discovery and self-destruction.
After college graduation, Rapp is now looking for her next project. She has written a new play that premieres October 21st at a Manhattan playhouse with the simple goal of gaining feedback.
She said, “I see this play like a short film, where at the end of the movie there’s a title at the end and the director has to cut that movie together into a short. The title of the play is College Girls. I’m looking for letters back from theater goers in all over the world. Anybody who wants to put themselves into the play and be interviewed as a college student.”
