From the 2015 Yale Repertory Theater world premiere production of peerless.

In an ordinary Midwestern high school, twin sisters M and L are competitive with everyone—except each other. When the failsafe combination of perfect academics, killer extracurriculars, and calculated self-identification fails to impress The College’s early decision admissions board, they hatch a sinister Plan B to secure their future. 

PEERLESS is a blisteringly funny new riff on Shakespeare’s Macbeth about the unbreakable bond between sisters whose vaulting ambition will not be deferred at any cost.

 

FFT is thrilled to give peerless its Midwest premiere. We love this script and are so excited to tackle the challenges it presents. 

We've assembled a gangbusters design team who are already dreaming and scheming something complex, elegant, and completely original. 

Our fiercely talented cast includes both long-time FFT collaborators and actors making their Chicago debuts! 

Our marketing team is working up a wishlist of ways to share this story with new audiences. 

We need your help to realize our ambitious vision for peerless
