Speech and Debate by Stephen Karam

Produced by Barrington Stage Company

July 13 - July 29, 2017 | On the St. Germain Stage

Pittsfield, MA



Critic's Pick!

A winning 'Speech and Debate'...directed with creative verve by Jessica Holt.

- Boston Globe 

“Staged with headlong energy by Jessica Holt, the play is about being young and gay, about identity and morality and risk, about longing for recognition and acceptance, and about as many laughs as you could wish for in a play that’s essentially quite serious.”
–Valley Advocate

“Speech & Debate is energetic and wickedly funny.”

“Holt's work here is excellent and the play profits from her insights and her talent....One of the best shows in the area this summer… This is one I would definitely see a second time.”
Berkshire Bright Focus

“Speech and Debate is good theater that is both entertaining and thoughtful”
