AUDIENCE: Grade 8 +
TOURING: Spring 2018
Moira takes pride in standing up for what she believes in. But after spearheading a protest at school that results in the spring dance being cancelled, she receives threatening statements online and at school. Luckily her best friends Simon and Connor have her back – until Simon reveals his romantic feelings towards Moira, which she doesn’t return. Feeling “friend-zoned”, Simon joins the barrage of hurtful comments, and Connor is forced to take a hard look at where his loyalties lie. The Code challenges audiences to examine the weight of their words, and consider what happens when lines are crossed.
