It’s summer break, and a group of Detroit teens is looking forward to celebrating with parties, relaxing, and hanging out on Belle Isle. But when a menacing classmate intrudes in their lives, they find their summer is nothing like they’d expected - and they feel powerless to speak out.

What happens when oppression simply goes too far? When do you step up and say something? Can we really trust those in power to protect us? In a modern adaptation of Lope De Vega’s "Fuente Ovejuna," the Matrix Teen Company has brought these questions to the stage. Come and see for yourself how a play written in the 1600’s still rings true today.

The Matrix Teen Company:
Samantha Aguilar, Zaria Bell, Dala Brown, Ni-Gea Dufeal, Ethan Kankula, Angel Montgomery-Kennedy, Hassan Marong, Joelle Sanders, Jeffrey Stevenson, Harvey Tully, and Dwayne Wright perform in this production, stage managed by Meaghan Tilson.
