The Gap

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)


The Gap follows a cheerleading team in a small town in the South, newly given the opportunity to redeem themselves at State. At Gilbert High, the cheerleaders are not the highest on the food chain. Most live in trailers and have after school jobs to pay for things they actually need or need to survive high school (a phone, rainbow flip flops). When the co-captain of the team makes it her mission to get the racist school mascot removed, her peers challenge the value of symbolic progress and her commitment to “change.”
