Silver Spring's Highwood Theatre presents RIOT, an original play that represents part of Highwood's third annual Open Source Theatre Project. The powerful, engaging story is set in a coffee shop on the fictional campus of Whitney University. The café, normally a friendly and sociable place where students meet and congregate, becomes the site of a heated discussion after a nearby student protest grows increasingly unruly. As updates pour in over social media, the culturally diverse café patrons begin an intense debate that similarly threatens to spin out of control. In a special twist, RIOT gives the audience the unique opportunity to contribute to the discussion on stage, allowing them to influence the characters in their discussions and shape the outcome of the story. In other words, the ending is different with each performance, which means you'll want to see -- or rather, experience -- RIOT as often as possible.
