Stephen Karam's new play Speech & Debate, the inaugural production in the Roundabout Theatre Company's Black Box Theatre directed by Jason Moore, emphasizes the significant role of The Outsider. Sarah Steele embodies Diwata, an ambitious and dorky theatre-obsessed girl in Salem, Oregon longing for her turn in the spotlight. Not finding it easy to be cast in her school shows, Diwata uses her personal podcasts and her school's budding Speech and Debate team to showcase her skills. But beyond her nerdy grin, Diwata and her new friends find themselves entangled in a web of keeping secrets and profound trust. Sarah Steele talks about her character and this deeply enjoyable and powerfully current new play.
