At a pre-season party in small town Steubenville, Ohio, a heinous crime took place—the assault of a teenage girl by members of the beloved high school football team. What transpired would garner national attention and result in the sentencing of two key offenders. But it was the disturbing social media evidence uncovered by crime blogger Alexandria Goddard that provoked the most powerful questions about the collusion of teen bystanders, teachers, parents and coaches to protect the assailants and discredit the victim. $15. www.irvingtontheater.com.

The vibrant tiles also reference the historic Dragon Coaster of Playland amusement park and the inspiring waters of Long Island Sound.
