The St. Catherine's drama club in Connecticut is struggling to put up its first school play—Sophocles' "Antigone." As if staging this tragedy in an all girls’ Catholic school in the '90s isn’t challenging enough, the cast’s beloved director ends up betraying them in an unforgivable way. And it’s almost opening night! The actors must figure out the right course of action, all while rehearsing a play about impossibly difficult choices. This coming-of-age story is an intimate look at identity, sexuality, morality, and asks: What is the right thing to do? And must the show go on?
