Chicago non-Equity premiere. Three teenage misfits in Salem, Oregon, discover they are linked by a sex scandal that's rocked their town. When one of them sets out to expose the truth, secrets become currency, the stakes get higher, and the trio's connection grows deeper in this searching, fiercely funny dark comedy with music by Tony Award winner Stephen Karam, and directed by David Lipschutz.
