Summer is winding down at Camp Snowflake and the girls of Cabin 12 are hosting the end of camp Jubilee. They can’t wait to share a fun night of s’mores, skits and songs with you – their fellow campers. But with trouble and strife brewing between this tight-nit group of friends, will they make it through the night without falling apart?
“Cabin 12” is an audience interactive theatre piece that explores the love, messiness, silliness and pain of female friendships in the formative years. The girls of Cabin 12 invite the audience to come play with them onstage – from a literal game of tug of war to revealing dark secrets, we see the ways in which girls are taught to fear, to shame, to compete with, and to love each other. With no counselors around and without supervision, what does it mean to be truly different in an environment of uniformity? What is there to cling to when your body is changing, your friendships are changing, and the world feels out of control? In what ways are we, society and “fellow campers,” complicit in the violence adolescent girls inflict on each other in small ways everyday? “Cabin 12” seeks to answer these questions while making us laugh and cry with nostalgia and recognition of our own vulnerable selves in our transitional phases.
This play contains Adult Language, Scenes of Violence, Depictions of Homophobia
