About This Show

OVO presents the teenage angst play The Gifted Program, by Ruben Carbajal. In 1986, the remaining members of the Dungeon & Dragon’s Club are the “in crowd” at a special school for gifted and talented students. When their school is dismantled these social retards are thrust into the harsh realities of an inner-city public high school and are instantly positioned at the bottom of the social food chain. When the identity of a secret admirer is revealed, the school’s rigid hierarchy is upended; for Washington High’s four most unpopular students, the simple pursuit of an education becomes a fight for survival. Mike Shapiro directs.

Opening night tickets are $30.

There is no show on Sunday, February 2, and there is an added show on Monday, February 3 at 8:00pm.
