Nilaja Sun's "No Child..."

"Astounding. ...An object lesson in what should not be missing from any life curriculum: hope." —The New Yorker.

Following its 12-month, sold-out New York run and a major American tour, Stanford Drama and Blackstage Theater Co. presents Nilaja Sun’s OBIE Award-winning No Child…

Inspired by Sun’s years as a teaching artist at high schools in the Bronx, this tour de force is an insightful and often hilarious look into New York City’s public education system. Her lightning-quick portrayals of the many characters inhabiting the city’s school structure – including teachers, students, parents, administrators, janitors and security guards – provide a touching and humorous examination of the universal challenges facing education everywhere. Offering hope and belief in a better, more caring society, this multi-award winning production is a highly original and inspiring work from an extraordinary performer.

There will be a talk-back with visiting UCSD professor Nadine George following the Thursday, Oct. 28th performance.


Ongoing every day from October 27, 2010 through October 30, 2010. 8:00 PM.
