PIPER THEATRE PRODUCTIONS PRESENTS:  SPOTLIGHT SERIES: GIRL IS MINE by Jane Elias

A play reading directed by Bettina Goolsby

Featuring: Gabriel Hernandez, Aisha Langford, Anuj Parikh, Celina Mylene Santana, Max Tamarkin

 

Sixteen-year-old Amanda has been spending time with her English teacher after school. When her father, her boyfriend, and her guidance counselor grow suspect of the relationship, she begins to question everyone’s motives – including her own. How can others know what’s best for you when you don’t yet know who you are?

 

PLAYWRIGHT STATEMENT: With Girl Is Mine, I am exploring the ways in which our identities emerge through the roles we play in relation to others, either in concert with or in opposition to their agendas. When does a relationship – in this case between father and daughter, boyfriend and girlfriend, teacher and student – cross the line from symbiotic to codependent? From complex to abusive? From mentorship to predation? Is it possible for a sixteen-year-old girl to have complete agency in her relationships with adults? Is it possible to heal an old wound by placing a bandage on a new one? For me so much in this play (as in the outside world) lives in a gray area: in what goes unsaid, in what’s almost said, and in what nearly happens. How much clarity and resolution is really necessary in order to move forward? I am grateful to Piper Theatre and this group of artists for working collaboratively to navigate these spaces as I continue to develop this play. ~ J.E.
