Exception to the Rule Summary

Exception to the Rule, playwright Dave Harris’s New York debut, crackles with humor and suspense—confronting the tactics for surviving institutions that were not built for you.

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?

"A ‘Breakfast Club’ for the modern high school — quicker, crasser, and funnier." - Grace Bydalek, New York Sun

"An exceptional new play, with a talented cast." - Robert Hoffler, The Wrap

"Explosive and hilarious. Everyone should see this play.” Juan Michael Porter II, New York Theatre Guide
