Students get detention for misbehaving. Anyone who’s seen The Breakfast Club knows that. But what happens to troublesome teachers? They too might wind up in a detention of their own. In the Tabard Theatre Company’s Evelyn in Purgatory, teacher Evelyn Reid is accused of misconduct by a failing student and finds herself holed up in a reassignment center where she waits for her case to be reviewed. The dramatic comedy is based on reportedly true tales of teacher “rubber rooms” formed by the NYC Department of Education. Runs through Jan. 28.
