What will be her dreadful fate
When the trumpet sounds the call
For those who stand against the state
Must first learn how to fall.

Possible expulsion, expulsion, expulsion.

Agatha is a girl who stands up for her beliefs, regardless of the consequences. As student council president at Thebes High, she vigorously defends a student who is unfairly punished. Based on her actions, she could be expelled and lose an important scholarship.

Set in a modern-day high school, the play translates the original Greek chorus into a fantastic ensemble opportunity.
