Heathers is a satirical take on the cultural norms of high school, following the protagonist Veronica Sawyer through a glittery, dark, and murderous senior year as she tackles color-coordinated mean girls, hypermasculine jocks and an unhinged boy (or in this case girl...) with painted nails. Veronica, the misfit protagonist of Heathers, struggles with fitting in with this hostile environment. Those feelings of alienation and non-conformance ring true for the many marginalized students who exist on Stanford’s campus, especially gender-marginalized people of color. In this, we hope that our performance — much like the original Heathers— is a satirical take of our own campus culture and promotes necessary conversations around identity and belonging.

What makes our production of Heathers even more unique is that we are piloting the first gender-bent antihero Janie Dean and the first queer female relationship between Janie “J.D.” Dean and Veronica Sawyer. The playwrights of the original Heathers have gifted us a newly rewritten script, enabling us to transform the original Jason “J.D.” Dean into Janie Dean in our show. We are excited for you join us on this journey and witness this new relationship dynamic in Heathers. Our production is supported by Queer Student Resources, Sexual Harassment/Assault Response & Education Office, and Cardinal Nights.
