A chilling true story about a high-school experiment that went out of control. Set in 1967, the play centers on a young, popular teacher who tries to demonstrate the roots of fascism by giving his students an exercise in discipline not unlike that of a totalitarian society. Shockingly, the students delight in the order and power of that discipline, and relinquish their freedom in favor of their supposed "superiority" over other students in the school. The class adopts the name "The Third Wave," and soon many others, even from neighboring schools, clamor to be part of the "elite" group.

Contains strong dramatic themes that may not be suitable for younger children.
