This year, Roundabout Youth Ensemble is going virtual.

Roundabout Theatre Company's after school program, Roundabout Youth Ensemble (RYE) is a student-led theatre company modeled after Roundabout's professional theatre production process.

In Hidden Truths, Omari finds himself in a new world in the city, filled with new people and potential that was unavailable in his old school. Though outcasted, it all becomes worth it when he meets Destiny, the daughter of the principal. Rumors of his hidden ability only further distance him from the rest of the school. 

Inspired by Othello, the play is a contemporary reimagining of Shakespeare’s work, Omari will have to prove his genuine love for Destiny to her father, and outwit the sociopathic student council president. How can a small group of teens prevail?
