About the Play
One day in a crowded high school cafeteria, the most popular girl in the junior class walks over to a quiet girl in a hijab who always eats her lunch alone and starts a conversation. They have nothing in common except a calculus class and two complicated misunderstandings. But their conversation surprises both of them and they make a connection neither one would have imagined.
