    Speech and Debate

    Presented by at The Lyric Stage Company

    March 27 - April 25, 2009


    Speech and Debate

    Even though they attend the same high school, misfits Solomon, Diwata, and Howie have never met. When a shocking scandal involving one of their teachers brings them together, they form a speech and debate club to make their voices heard. As the unlikely trio negotiates adolescent trials of identity, sexuality, and belonging, they combat pervasive adult hypocricy and discover that their united voices are stronger than one. Variety says playwright Stephen Karam's poignant, insightful, and hilarious new black comedy is "bristling with vitality, wicked humor, terrific dialogue, and a direct pipeline into the zeitgeist of contemporary youth."
