SYNOPSIS: The Tribunal kidnaps its victims, drags them to the basement of the school, and subjects them to psychological and physical coercion. "Change your ways," the Tribunal demands, "or else!" Yet this secret, hooded society is not comprised of thugs and criminals, but of the top students in the school. The mission of the Tribunal, supported by the administration: Clean up the school. Make it a place ruled not by the troublemakers, but by those who truly want to be educated. The plan works, too, until the Tribunal meets its match in Peter, one of the school's worst offenders, who tries to blackmail the group into serving his own selfish desires. This provocative play asks a difficult question: "Is violence justified to achieve righteous ends?"
