From the Tony Award winning playwright Stephen Karam, a brilliant dark comedy from Australian theatre producer Trish Wadley
“A triumph…hilarious, cliché-free, and immensely entertaining…” New York Times
Defibrillator presents the UK Premiere of this fiercely funny play directed by Tom Attenborough.
The play, a dark comedy with music, concerns three misfit teenagers and their attempts to expose a drama teacher who preys on teen boys. Solomon is a reporter for the school newspaper, Howie is a gay teen, who is solicited by the school’s drama teacher on the internet, and Diwata is an aspiring actress/singer, but with no talent. They decide to perform a musical version of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, combined with time travel and a young Abraham Lincoln, to address the issue of gay adults at the school.
