The White Girl’s Guide to International Terrorism
By Chelsea Marcantel
Directed by Morgan Green
Teenage best friends Blaze and Rowena see no future for themselves in their burnt-out hometown, where employment is down, drug addiction is up, and hope is extinct. Then a voice reaches out to them from deep within the internet with a startling offer: the girls can help to build a new Utopia, if they can just get across the world to join a band of “freedom fighters” in the Middle East. What is the true nature of this internet siren? And are the promises she makes worth the enormous sacrifice she demands? For blaze and Rowena, this cocktail of heroism, hope, and teenage impulsivity is too potent to resist, and they are plunged into a fight to claim their own identities in an arena where the stakes could not be higher—for themselves, or their native country.
The White Girl’s Guide to International Terrorism was commissioned by San Francisco Playhouse, and will appear in our 2018/19 Sandbox Series.
