In Itamar Moses' Yellowjackets, set at Berkeley High, a racially insensitive story printed in the school newspaper sparks controversy.
"We had had our eye on Itamar for awhile and when we approached him, the first thing out of his mouth was -- I want to write a piece about Berkeley High," recalls Taccone. In the play, the school's newspaper, The Jacket, publishes a racially insensitive story, resulting in a conflict that affects teachers and students alike. Taccone thinks that it will challenge local audiences since "It's a portrait of a place that people have a strong opinion about because they live in it, and think they know it. So, it should be interesting to see what kind of controversy it sparks."
