Knox Pride presents

But I'm A Cheerleader

Directed by
Jamie Babbitt

We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Knox Pride for a two-night engagement for the 20th anniversary of Jamie Babbitt’s sharp, chipper satire, which brought comfort to queer teens and spurred broader attention to the malign ridiculousness of (now commonly outlawed) reorientation camps.

Megan (Natasha Lyonne) considers herself a typical American girl. She excels in school and cheerleading, and she has a handsome football-playing boyfriend, even though she isn’t that crazy about him. So she’s stunned when her parents decide she’s gay and send her to True Directions, a boot camp meant to alter her sexual orientation. While there, Megan meets a rebellious and unashamed teen lesbian, Graham (Clea DuVall). Though Megan still feels confused, she starts to have feelings for Graham.
