Three teenage misfits in Salem, Oregon, discover they are linked by a sex scandal that’s rocked their town. When one of them sets out to expose the truth, secrets become currency, the stakes get higher, and the trio’s connection grows deeper in this searching, fiercely funny dark comedy with music.
And that’s not the half of it.
As directed by Rebecca Bradshaw, the play mixes social media, time travel, and flat-out burlesque into a stew of alienated teens stewing about adult authority – and impropriety.
The cast is uniformly terrific: Veronica Anastasio Wiseman as the teacher/NPR reporter, Evan Vihlen as the expressive gay teen Howie, Ross Magnant as the unexpressive gay teen Solomon.
But it’s Katie Elinoff who steals the show with her inspired performance as Diwata, the drama queen who can’t get a lead role in any of the school plays.
More details here, but really, go see it. It’s a total hoot.
