The North Pool

By Rajiv Joseph

Thompson Shelterhouse | May 3 - June 1, 2014

Khadim, a Middle Eastern-born transfer student, has no idea why he’s been called into the office of his high school's vice principal in the final hours before the start of spring break. But an investigation of a minor school infraction soon leads to questions of a decidedly more dangerous nature. As secret after secret is exposed, the suspenseful revelations in this riveting psychological drama threaten to change both men forever.

"Engrossing." – Variety

Advisory: The North Pool is appropriate for adult and older teenage audiences. There is some adult language and mature themes. Please contact the Box Office if you have questions or require additional information.
