DESCRIPTION

Moira takes pride in standing up for what she believes, but spearheading a protest brings unexpected consequences when school administrators cancel the spring dance. Moira endures harsh backlash from fellow students, with cruel messages online and at school. Luckily, she has the support of her best friends, Simon and Connor, until Simon reveals romantic feelings that Moira doesn’t return. Feeling hurt and angry, Simon joins the barrage of harsh critics, and Connor is forced to take a hard look at where his loyalties lie. With humor and nuance, Rachel Alberle’s play challenges teens to hold themselves accountable for their words and actions and understand the stakes of misusing social media.
