About the show
In this one-act play, the four worst bullies of the school are stuck in detention together because a mortifying video was leaked, and one of them was the culprit. Can they, in the course of 1 day together in detention, confront their prejudices and not only become friends, but heroes? In the retelling of the movie the Breakfast Club, this play showcases fresh, funky, and funny new voices from emerging theatre creators that are committed to elevating art for youth.
