Two rival high schools, Southwest High and Northeast High, are neck-to-neck in the final rounds of Brain Drain, a local television game show. The questions onstage and offstage are the same: What does it mean to be Un-American? What makes a good citizen? As tension escalates between the two teams and the game nears its end, answers come in a way none of the students could have ever expected: A surprise interrogation by the House of Un-American Activities Committee. The students, unexplainably trapped in one of America’s darkest eras, are each confronted with questions of identity and integrity as they deal with accusations of being Un-American. Featuring professional actor, Jason Lott, and a cast and crew made up entirely of students from Arlington high schools, this is one performance you won’t want to miss!
