How do you make it through detention? In the worst high school in the city, six Black students are stuck in Room 111. They flirt. They fight. They tease. Should they follow the rules and stay put, or find an escape? Are the walls keeping them in, or are stronger forces at play?

COVID Safety Information:
All audience members 5 years of age and older are required to be fully vaccinated before entering the theatre. Audience members 18 years of age and older must show proof of vaccination along with a valid photo ID. “Vaccinated” means on the day of the performance date as shown on the valid ticket, a guest has received
(a) the second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized 2-dose COVID-19 vaccine, or
(b) the single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized 1-dose vaccine, or
(c) for international guests, 2 doses of any “mix and match” combination of an FDA or WHO approved COVID-19 vaccines is acceptable.
All audience members will be required to show proof of vaccination, which clearly identifies the vaccine received and the date of the last dose, along with a corresponding photo ID for audience members 18 years of age and older.
Children under age 5 are not permitted in the theatre.
Audience members with a qualifying disability, or a sincerely held religious belief precluding them from receiving the vaccine may present—in lieu of proof of vaccination—proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test within 72 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test within 6 hours of the performance start time.
