Behind Closed Doors was the first ever production by Red Pants Productions.

Behind Closed Doors originated as a story about a dancer named Baby who is in an abusive relationship with her boyfriend Alex.  Alex disregards Baby's aspirations, and wants her to find a more sensible job, and give up the relationships she shares with her friends.  Alex then starts to become physically and sexually abusive, when Baby decides to leave and return to the home she's left.

During the 2015 staging, the show was revamped to be about a high school student named Baby who is sexually abused by a popular student named Alex when working on putting together the spring musical production of "Behind Closed Doors."  Unfortunately, the public ridicule ends up on Baby, as a campaign to "Free Alex" is formed by a classmate named Maddy.  Later Alex pushes his unwanted advances onto Maddy and she begs Baby for forgiveness, but will she listen?
