When you’re a young girl of color caught in a stifling web of educational neglect, calcified courts, and an overwhelmed incarceration system, orange ain’t the new black—it’s a trap. Behind the scenes though, there are complicated, varied stories of girls trying to survive and escape that shadow web with their humanity, dignity, and individuality intact.

This exploration of the unique effects of what we problematically call “the school-to-prison pipeline” on girls of color will reveal the community-wide collusion of parents, educators, and litigants that has led us here . . . and what it may take to get out.

This world premiere by award-winning and nationally-recognized playwright Darren Canady combines a cast of young actors from the A.C.T. Education & Community Program, Destiny Arts Center in Oakland, and the Young Conservatory.
