by Laurence O'Keefe and Kevin Murphy

A Senior Project in American Studies for Henry Tisch

Heathers_ydc
Heathers is recommended for audiences age 14 and older and contains strobe and water-based haze effects.

Based on the cult classic film, Heathers is a dark comedy about a high school where students would literally kill themselves for social standing. It’s 1989, and Veronica Sawyer has finally achieved popularity by befriending the Heathers, three deranged queen bees named (you guessed it) Heather. After Veronica accidentally feeds the head Heather in charge a drain-cleaner smoothie, J.D., the new kid in town with a chip on his shoulder and a mysterious past, convinces Veronica to forge a suicide note and make it look like Heather killed herself. As J.D. sets off a wave of revenge killings, copy-cat suicides, and bomb threats, Veronica realizes it’s up to her to restore balance to Westerberg High.

Hilariously twisted and deeply moving, Heathers makes Mean Girls look like Sesame Street.
