On November 20th and 21st, the South of Broadway Theatre will be presenting "Power Play," written by Lindsay Price and directed by Arlene Lagos.

So, what's it all about?

Here's a bit form the presser we received:

A gunshot is heard. Which of the five characters did it and why? Was it the goth girl? The volleyball star? The super-intelligent geek? The funny fat girl? The beauty queen?

High school violence is a timely topic, but it is too often simplistically portrayed by putting teens into tidy categories and pointing at the outsider.

Power Play explores the realities and the stereotypes of high school violence- not just the brutal shock of the school shooting, but also verbal harassment and bullying. Violence is about power. So is high school.

Tickets will be on sale soon and will be $10 adult and just $5 student, so go out and support local theater without breaking the bank. 

We'll keep you updated as to when they become available.
