Description

Written by Stephen Karam

Directed by Robin Stanton

In this Off-Broadway hit play with music that Entertainment Weekly hailed as one of the 10 best plays of last season, three teenage misfits in Salem, Oregon discover they are curiously connected by a sex scandal that’s rocked their hometown. When the trio, under the guise of a speech and debate team, form an unlikely alliance to seek out and disclose the truth, secrets become currency, stakes escalate, and their connection grows deeper in their quest for the trifecta of fame, free speech and the perfect Broadway musical number.
