They may go to the same school, but misfits Solomon, Diwata and Howie have never met and their teachers and peers just don't take them seriously until a sex scandal involving one of their teachers brings them together. Soon they realize that three voices are stronger than one. And since their school has no speech and debate squad, maybe this is their chance to be heard at last by the school and even the world.

Professional reviews

"In this triumphant L.A. Theatre Works production, a high school teacher may or may not have solicited gay sex with a minor on the Internet. Rising Hollywood talents Andrea Bowen, Gideon Glick, and Bobby Steggert are hilariously radiant as the three high school students who may or may not know something about it. Recorded before a lively and appreciative audience, Stephen Karam's clever, boisterous, and often politically incorrect script carefully peels away the angst that Diwata, Howie, and Solomon feel when they find there's a lot more to life than forming the school's first Speech and Debate Club--for example, discovering friendship and tolerance for who they are and who they want to be.
