Viewers of TV’s The Office had to chuckle when Dwight Schrute melodramatically happened upon the fact that co-worker Kelly Kapoor had spent some time as an adolescent in “juvie.” But there’s no irony nor much laughter here in Jerome McDonough’s short play, set in a juvenile detention center and depicting 13 teens who are scared and lonely, awaiting judgment for their crimes. Their offenses range from shoplifting to a robbery gone very wrong, and McDonough’s drama allows us to spend an evening reliving their misdeeds and the consequences thereof. The play has heretofore found ready audiences in educational settings, and here director Vickie Bailey, media specialist at Isaac Litton Middle School, guides a diverse cast of talented younger players through the poignancy. The ensemble includes Alwyn Mothershed, Alex Georgeadis, Brody Furline and 12 others (some roles are double-cast). The original music is supplied by actor/musician Will Clay and songwriters Margee Forman and Mark J. Thomas.
