A reading of a new play by professional actors, a talk back following the reading with the playwright, cast, and director, and an opportunity for audience members to complete a response card for each play/musical.
At Dunston-Hall Academy, Raymond Castillo, a returning junior, and Sasha Gomez, a new sophomore, meet and bond over being two of the "scholarship kids" at a mostly white boarding school, the stupid stuff their white hallmates say, feeling like fish out of water both at home and at DHA, and their passions for music and art. Their growing friendship is tested, however, when they must navigate a series of personal tragedies, uncomfortable revelations, and betrayals as the fall semester unfolds.
NOTE: Strong language.
Featuring Maya Cuevas and Willie Marte from our production of IN THE HEIGHTS.
