Columbia University School of the Arts presents the MFA Acting class of 2023 in Halfway Bitches Go Straight to Heaven.

18 raucous women, one goat, and the relentless presence of the Upper West Side’s residents are just a few layers to Stephen Adly Guirgis’s Halfway Bitches Go Straight to Heaven. Through a series of explosive exchanges, this play shows the effects of displacement on a group of women seeking refuge at Hope House, a government-funded shelter. Within these walls, tension builds as relationships evolve. This production questions which individuals are left out of society’s fabric. And how do they persevere in a system that works against them?
