Speech & Debate

November 9-12, 2017
Lab Theatre in the Booker T. Washington Building
Written by Stephen Karam
Directed by Marybeth Gorman Craig

Speech & Debate contains adult themes and is not appropriate for children.

In this critically acclaimed dark comedy by playwright Stephen Karam (author of 2016 Best Play Tony-winner The Humans), three high school misfits find connection as they plot to expose a teacher who preys on his male students.  In the process, they must contend with their own secrets and insecurities to discover the power of their voices. 


Flat-out funny … Karam has an outstanding ear for how young people talk.
