It's about what happens outside the classroom
SCHOOLED is a fiercely funny and gripping new play about privilege, ambition, and the lengths we’ll go to succeed. Two students vie for a competitive grant from their roguish professor in a taut threesome that tests their romantic relationship and their ethics. A biting drama with surprising humor, SCHOOLED is an examination of the lies we tell ourselves, and the truths we refuse to believe.
