Roundabout Theatre Company has now confirmed complete casting for its forthcoming world premiere of Exception to the Rule, written by Dave Harris and directed by Miranda Haymon, as part of the Roundabout Underground 2019-2020 season.

The cast includes MaYaa Boateng (as Erika), Malik Childs (as Tommy), Toney Goins (as Dayrin), Galen Kane (as Abdul), Claudia Logan (as Dasani), and Kadijah Raquel (as Mikayla).

As previously reported, Exception to the rule is set to begin previews at the Black Box Theatre within the Harold & Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre on April 30, 2020, ahead of an official opening on May 21 and a limited engagement through to June 28, 2020.

Synopsis: "Exception to the Rule crackles with humor and suspense—confronting the tactics for surviving institutions that were not built for you. How do you make it through detention? In the worst high school in the city, six students are stuck in Room 111. They flirt. They fight. They tease. Should they follow the rules and stay put, or find an escape? Are the walls keeping them in, or are stronger forces at play?"

The creative team features scenic design by Reid Thompson, lighting design by Cha See and sound design by Lee Kinney, with additional creative team members to be announced shortly.

Exception to the Rule Tickets are available now for performances from April 30 through June 28, 2020.
