Something is amiss in a Catholic boys' boarding school. The students have become sinister, furtive and conspiratorial as they steal up and down staircases after hours. The menace erupts in savagery as the students torture one of their members and then another and another. What is the disease that has settled in their souls? Who is torturing the crotchety classics professor by sending obscene photographs to his dying mother? And why? The answer is hate in its devilish forms of pride, envy and jealousy a hate so perverse that it has infected the students and the staff.

This is one of the most well written plays that I've read in awhile. There are a lot of technical challenges in terms of set, but there are ways around them.
