Recess isn’t all hopscotch and double-dutch my friends. Recess is all business. And with business, comes politics: the hierarchy; the justice system; the rebels; the planning and plotting for revenge. And let’s not forget the rendezvous and secret congregations. HBO’s new six-part miniseries, The Yard, takes a bold look at what goes on in the schoolyard, while satirizing and calling attention to the politics we all face in our everyday lives.
