Written by Hailey Colwell (age 11), and Hailey Colwell (age 21)

Upon finding her fifth grade journal, a writer crosses timelines and meets her younger self. New scenes and a source text collide as she traces her start as a storyteller growing up in Saint Paul.

Written for the 2015 Minnesota Fringe Festival. Produced by the Snelling Fire Brigade.


“It’s clear from Girlhood that Colwell has been a confident writer for far longer than I’ve known her, but this script reaches for a new level of formal ambition as well as new depths of feeling, and it succeeds brilliantly.” — The Tangential

“It feels real, because it is real.” — MinnyApple
