This play is rated PG-13. “Beginning at 2:47 p.m. and running in real time, Prospect High: Brooklyn introduces us to four intelligent, highly-charged students from the outer boroughs and one comically apathetic teacher. Addressing themes of gun violence, trans acceptance, deep friendships, self-harm, and casual racism, we see life-changing actions culminating in one disturbing act. Is there a way the violence could have been prevented?”
