(One night only!)

 by Stephan Karam | directed by Melory Mirashrafi

A fiercely funny dark comedy that entwines three teenage misfits in Salem, Oregon, in a quest to expose the truth of a sex scandal involving the mayor and young boys online. When they realize that they each hold a sordid piece of the puzzle, purposes are double and triple crossed, conversations explode, secrets are bartered, and ultimately, their friendship is sealed. First produced at ART in the 2008/09 season. 

This performance is approximately 90 minutes long
