UALR Theatre production SPEECH AND DEBATE continues this weekend

Speech&Debate-400wideStephen Karam’s award winning comedy Speech and Debate continues at UALR through this weekend.

It is being performed at 8pm Thur and Fri, 7pm on Saturday and 2:30pm on Sunday at the University Theatre on the UALR campus.

This production is directed by visiting professor, Robert Neblett. The play, a dark comedy with music, concerns three misfit teenagers, Howie (openly gay), Solomon (nerdy), and Diwata (frumpy and obsessed with musicals), and their attempts to expose a drama teacher who preys on teen boys. It employs humor and dance as it explores this.

Each of the scenes is a title of an event in competitive forensics.
