The Code

Presented by Green Thumb Theatre

Written by Rachel Aberle

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 cruel messages 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. With humour and nuance, The Code challenges teens to hold themselves accountable for their words and actions, and consider what’s at stake when lines are crossed.
