How do you make it through detention? In the worst high school in the city, six Black 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?

This is the story explored in the new Roundabout Theatre Company Roundabout Underground production “Exception to the Rule” by Dave Harris and directed by Miranda Haymon.

Dave Harris is a poet and playwright from West Philly. He is the Tow Playwright-in-Residence at Roundabout.

His first feature film, “Summertime” premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival. Miranda Haymon is a Princess Grace Award winning writer, director, and curator currently developing several projects in theatre, podcasts, and TV/film and with their production company The Hodgepodge Group. Currently, they are a Resident Director at Roundabout Theatre Company.

“Exception to the Rule” begins performances on April 28th in the Black Box Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre on W. 46th Street in New York City.
