About St. Juliana’s School for Troubled Girls

By Claire Vogel
Directed by Ahnikah Bachleitner

This quick-witted, modern, mumblecore show turns from funny to devastating on a dime. Young women are sent away to St. Juliana’s for various “troubling” things: sex, mental illness, drugs, and sexual identity. Together, six of these troubled girls take down the institution that is bleeding their parents dry and denying them the education they deserve.

About Taking Survey

While counting votes in their small town, the two of them engage in a fascinating, witty, and all-too-rare conversation about caste, politics, and challenges within the voting system and one another.
