PEERLESS

by JIEHAE PARK
directed by LILY TUNG CRYSTAL

January 31 - February 16, 2020

 

High school seniors and Asian American twins M and L will do whatever it takes to get into “The College.” When the affirmative action spot is given to D, a classmate who is 1/16th Native American, the sisters will stop at nothing to take back what is rightfully theirs. A dark comedy about the very ambitious and the cut-throat world of high school during college admissions.
