Piper Apprentice Show 2015
Wednesday, July 15
on the Old Stone House Main Stage
Hijabs and Hot Pants
A comedy written by Piper student Darya Foroohar
Farigis, a seemingly stereotypical, religious Tehrani school girl, and Farah, her New York based cousin, are 12 year olds who haven’t seen each other in years–that is until their dads decide they need a little cross cultural experience. When Farah travels to Iran to visit Farigis, the two create their own axis of evil, rock each other’s worlds, and show their families they are more than stereotypes.
Written by Piper student James Steinman Gordon (aged 13)
Directed by John P. McEneny
James joins a summer theater camp where he encounters a tribe of musical-obsessed children who spend July dancing, singing Sondheim and enduring madcap directors. A story of James’ discovery of friendship, first love and his own sexuality.
