ABOUT THE SHOW

THE PORCH heads back to the Modern Theatre at Suffolk University, the scene for this past season’s "Chicken and Biscuits" by Douglas Lyons, with "EXCEPTION TO THE RULE" by Dave Harris.

Stuck in detention in the worst high school in the city, six Black students try to make it through, fighting, flirting, and teasing.

"'EXCEPTION TO THE RULE' is funny, and hard. The characters are real. How does our society treat the kids that are considered "low achieving?" What does it mean to be a token Black kid in a sea of other Black kids?" says director Donovan Holt.

"EXCEPTION TO THE RULE" partners THE PORCH once again with Suffolk University, and with Northeastern University for the first time.

Content Advisories: 

Profanity, subjects of generational trauma, PTSD, mentions of: slavery, gun violence/gang activity, detention to prison pipeline, and cannabis. 

Please Note: This production utilizes flashing lights and loud sounds. 


ABOUT FRONT PORCH ARTS COLLECTIVE 

THE FRONT PORCH ARTS COLLECTIVE is a black theatre company committed to advancing racial equity in Boston through theater. FRONT PORCH ARTS COLLECTIVE  is a communal gathering place.
For nearly a decade, Boston has existed without a professional Black theatre company employing artists of color and demanding the consideration of the major news outlets in Greater Boston. Boston’s reputation as an unwelcoming and racist city, featured prominently in a seven-part Spotlight series in the Boston Globe, highlighted issues of structural racism, including the visible cultural segregation in the arts. As a Black theater company committed to rewriting those narratives, our namesake signifies a communal spirit, inspiring us to serve communities of color and produce art that is inclusive of all communities and welcoming to all audiences, to inspire a more tolerant and inclusive Boston.
