Written by Cherie Gordon
Directed by Cherie Gordon and Flo O'Mahony

Beth is confident, clever and wants to become the world’s best leader. But people keep calling her bossy.

When Beth decides to run for Head Girl, she must embark on a quest to find out who she really is, what she stands for.


On a hunt to find a role model she can call her own, she finds herself bopping with pop stars and mingling with mermaids. But Beth soon realises that what’s really important might be found in her roots a little closer to home.


Multi-award winning Zoo Co presents this brand new show celebrating Black culture. Featuring a kick-ass Caribbean soundtrack, and performed in BSL and Sign Supported English, you’ll leave this show feeling pumped up and powerful!
