by Jen Silverman

Alyssa Long is pretty, rich, and lucky enough to have attracted the attention of mysterious newcomer, Felix Maia. But in the wake of her sudden disappearance, frenemies gather and rumors abound.  Described as Gossip Girl meets Lord of the Flies, That Poor Girl... by contemporary playwright, Jen Silverman (who critics have called “a fresh voice who takes chances, but also a playwright who plumbs the depth of humanity without sentimentality”) is a (very) dark comedy that looks at social media and social justice, how far we're willing to go, and who we are when we get there.
