American Girl 

Based on the tragic, true story of Nikki Kuhnhausen (pictured here), a 17 year-old transgender girl who was killed in a violent hate crime, American Girl dramatizes Nikki's turbulent family life and the forces and events that led to her death. Based on interviews with Nikki's family and friends, the play tells an all-too modern American story of addiction, homelessness, domestic abuse, sex work and murder. (Parts for 1 trans woman, 3W, 2M)
