Exception to the Rule
UPDATE: This production has been postponed until fall 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Roundabout Undergorund presents the world premiere of Exception to the Rule, written by Dave Harris and directed by Miranda Haymon, at the Black Box Theatre. It was initially announced as part of Roundabout Theatre Company's 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season.
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?
