It’s 8:00 am on a Monday morning. Mr. Wright, the only openly queer teacher, is not in the building. As rumors fly and students begin to question each other and the adults around them, the school is thrown into turmoil.

LGBTQuiet is a one-act play that follows a group of students as they navigate claiming their personal identities in the culture war of their school. This show will explore identity, self-expression, and wanting to be seen and heard in an environment that is suppressing you in the name of “protection”. Taking inspiration from the discourse surrounding the Don’t Say Gay Bill, Shadow Company presents a drama centered on the failure of schools to act in the best interests of their students.



Shadow Company

A performing arts company made of high school students, Shadow Company members learn about all aspects of the theater-making process, including on and offstage roles. With an ensemble-based methodology, they work with a director, professional artists and industry leaders to build their skills as artists, collaborators, leaders, and citizens.
