Speech and Debate

By Stephen Karam
Directed by Mark Camilli (COL '19)
Advised by Professor Maya E. Roth
Stage Managed by Abi Franklin (COL ’19)

Following the sex scandal of the Republican mayor of Salem, Oregon, three outcast teens are brought together by an unconventional debate team at Salem High School complete with a musical version of The Crucible and a plot to take down the corrupt adults around them. Solomon, a nerdy teen passionate about journalism, hopes to expose homophobic closeted men in positions of power. Diwata's trying to out her creepy drama teacher who blocks her dreams of stardom. Howie, new to the school, is fighting for the first gay/straight alliance in the area. In this dark comedy with music about sexuality, identity, and power, no one's secrets are off limits... including their own.
