Pillsbury House Theatre (City Pages’ Best Theater in the Twin Cities 2013) is opening a show called Prep by Tracey Scott Wilson on September 18th. It dramatizes issues in the undercurrent of education and discipline within today’s public school system. An emotionally overwhelmed teacher tries to diffuse an altercation between two male students to avoid a potential school-wide fight. As the tragic story slowly unfurls, the teacher wrestles with the questions — is the system supporting and educating youth or forcing them to lash out? Who is responsible when things go wrong?
