Even though they attend the same high school, misfits Solomon, Diwata, and Howie have never met. When a shocking scandal involving one of their teachers brings them together, they form a speech and debate club to make their voices heard. As the unlikely trio negotiates adolescent trials of identity, sexuality, and belonging, they combat pervasive adult hypocrisy and discover that their united voices are stronger than one. Variety says playwright Stephen Karam's poignant, insightful, and hilarious new black comedy is "bristling with vitality, wicked humor, terrific dialogue, and a direct pipeline into the zeitgeist of contemporary youth."
