Debate teen

When a daring show like Stephen Karam’s Speech & Debate comes along—about a trio of teenage outsiders who discover the truth about a sex scandal in their hometown of Salem, Oregon—it garners well-deserved buzz. Dealing with heavy themes like sex, money, trust, and the nebulous transition from adolescence to adulthood, the dark comedy doesn’t pull any punches just because the roles are played by teenagers. Sort of like the way real life operates.

Through 2/16 $25, 8pm. Live Arts, 123 E. Water St. 977-4177.
