*Commissioned by Pillsbury House Theatre with the support of a Joyce Award.
From the playwright of Buzzer comes Prep. Prep is Tracey Scott Wilson’s epic story of two black high school students and their principal trying to make it through one extraordinary day. Chris is a spiritually focused go-getter who is respected around school. His friend Oliver is good hearted but on the edge of going down the wrong path. Ms. Michelle, their principal, struggles to keep focused as she supports her ‘scholars’ and diffuses mounting tensions. As the story unfolds, the students wrestle with dynamics of loyalty, friendship and injustice while trying to protect a secret that could change the course of their lives.
At once an urgent appeal to end the violence erupting on the streets and realize the potential of our youth, Prep examines the effects of racism and class in our cities’ schools.
