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.
The Alliance Stage is the Alliance Theatre's primary performing space.
