Twin high school seniors L and M are dead-set on attending not just an Ivy League school, but the Ivy League school. With their perfect SAT scores, perfect hair, and “perfect” minority status, they think acceptance should be guaranteed. When a rival student emerges with a personal tragedy to make an admissions officer weep, however, the twins will do anything to knock out the competition. Does that include murder most foul? Mean Girls meets Macbeth in this dark comedy, which sets one of Shakespeare’s bloodiest plays against the backdrop of competitive college admissions.
Peerless, presented by Company One, will be performed through May 27, at Rabb Hall, Central Library in Copley Square. All tickets for peerless are Pay-What-You-Want, with a suggested $10 donation, no minimum required. For show times and information, click HERE.
