World Premiere
Part of the Family Series

Join us on November 5 for an exclusive afternoon of public performances.

Daisy is a typical American middle school student, or at least she thought she was before someone wrote a religious slur across her locker. Now Daisy, who has always found it difficult to fit in, faces pressure to become a spokesperson for minorities at her school, and the ideas she has about herself are getting more and more blurred by how others see her and who they want her to be. As she struggles to balance allegiance to her cultural roots, to her school community, and, most importantly, to herself, Daisy asks the crucial question: Are we what society says we are? Or can we be whoever we want to be? An important original play about identity, race, and religion in middle school by Greg Changnon in collaboration with his students at Atlanta's Paideia School and the young actors in the Alliance Theatre summer drama camps.

Alliance Rendering 1

The Alliance Theatre has released final design renderings of its theater transformation, which is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017. This is the first major building reinvention for the theater since its construction in 1968 as part of the Woodruff Arts Center campus. The Alliance Theatre will perform its 2017/18 season in 12 different locations in the metro Atlanta area, bringing live theater out into the community it serves. The Alliance plans to return to its new theater space for its 50th anniversary season in the fall of 2018.
