Local Girls

High school chemistry nerd Diskit needs some friends who aren’t her dad. High school burnout Riley needs a new screamer for her metal band. The Zombie Fuel Energy Drink Wreak Ruckus Battle of the Bands could transform them both from high school losers into rock gods. Maybe it'll even get them out of Tucker, Georgia. A scream rock fantasia about searching for big-time glory in a small-time town.

    LOCAL GIRLS is a wonder! It's a perfect fit for Azuka's mission of telling the stories of Outcasts and Underdogs. Diskit's coming of age story is fresh and funny and full of heart. Emma's characters ring so true, and her dialogue is so pitch perfect you become fully engaged in the world she's creating and leave the theater with the distinct sense that you've actually met these people.

    I love LOCAL GIRLS! This writer deftly blends humor and pathos in this Act of Supreme Kinetic Imagination. A really rare gem of a play that is both an entertaining evening of theater and genuinely examines the complexities of coming of age in an utterly fresh and thrilling way.
