Opens on Friday, November 13, 2015 and runs Thu-Sat at 8pm and Sun at 2pm through November 28 (no performance on Thanksgiving Day).

Written by Leonard D. Goodisman.

Five lives are put at stake when Marie, a high school sophomore, gets suspended from school for an alleged computer attack and begins to believe she may truly not belong. Her parents, sensing this is their fight as well, jump up to take action against the school principal, who believes she has done the best she can in carrying out the suspension. However, tensions rise when Marie’s father meets a lawyer who proudly tells him of the biggest accomplishment of his career – the very law that made Marie’s suspension so easy – and everyone begins to face the reality that their “best” may have led them down a darker path than intended.

Directed by Megan Brewer
