Popovsky Profile- Lizzy Plakans
Lizzy Plakans is Margaret in the upcoming Popovsky production of Social Studies playing this weekend May 4-6, 2018. You can find tickets here.
Seven girls from seven different walks of life get a surprise when they arrive for Day One of their 8th-grade social studies course — a virtual-classroom exam, part of a nationwide study, full of probing questions about their feelings, families and relationships. As they write, we eavesdrop on their thoughts. Through inner monologues, imagined scenarios and introspective songs, the girls discover who they really are, who they want to be, and the unseen connection between them.
With an inventive, hilarious book and an emotional pop-rock score, SOCIAL STUDIES is a wide-open window into the mind of the American teenager.
Margaret is a 14-year old girl from Fair Lawn, NJ who is scared of her own shadow,
and constantly feels judged by those around her. Margaret is afraid to have hopes
and dreams and struggles with the implications of a secret she can’t even fully admit
to herself. Will she learn to trust herself enough to take a deep breath and take
control of her future?
