Stephen Karam's comedy Speech & Debate follows three misfit teenagers who are brought together by a sex scandal in their school. With nobody taking them seriously, they find refuge in the debate society and speak out, resulting in hilarious consequences. Living in a social media minefield, Howie, Solomon and Diwata struggle with homophobia, online privacy and hot to get the lead in the school play. Tom Attenborough directs the play, which is given its UK premiere at the Trafalgar Studios in February.

 

About Trafalgar Studios

The Trafalgar Studios are two venues housed within what was London's Whitehall Theatre. The building itself is Grade II listed, and is an excellent example of simple, unadorned Art Deco style. The interior, however, is spectacular, with complex, cubist designs and sweeping curves of moulding and ironwork. More about Trafalgar Studios
