Summary/Abstract: The review of Tales of a Fourth Grade Lesbo directed by Giny Young (Highways Performance Space, Santa Monica, California, 12.06.2012). To adequately analyse the production the reviewer uses the concept of “growing sideways” developed by Kathryn Bond Stockton. Gina Young and her female cast dismantle cultural stereotypes, telling autobiographical stories about growing up. They concentrate on the lives of girls alienated from the rest of the society in the last decade of the previous century. Lesbian culture offers an ironic background to their narratives.
