At Thornbrooke Academy for Troubled Girls, a private reform school for teens in the New England countryside, students live a life of restriction and disempowerment. But things change one morning when nine students decide to take their punitive teacher hostage, and take control of their auxiliary classroom. In this tiny space they claim for themselves, the girls are able to throw off the strictures of Thornbrooke and exercise their own agency. But there’s one major problem: there’s no wifi, and nothing on the other side of that door but punishment for their crimes. So they make the strange and fateful choice to pass the time by rehearsing Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, the only book in the room with enough copies to go around.  Over the course of the next week, they camp out in their strange, cramped little kingdom, and grapple with justice, sex, leadership, and power through the pages of a problem play.
