Nilaja Sun: No Child
"Sun was a teaching artist in the New York public school system, while also writing and performing in numerous Off-Broadway shows. She turned this experience into a rapid-fire, kaleidoscopic look at a multiethnic classroom of students -- plus their parents, school administrators and staff, including a janitor and a security guard working the front door metal detector.... Hal Brooks will direct. Brooks is renowned for mounting powerful solo shows, such as Pulitzer Prize finalist 'Thom Pain (based on nothing)' by Will Eno. Brooks staged the original production of “No Child…,” which has played nationally and internationally to critical praise, following its year-long Obie Award-winning run Off-Broadway. He was recently named artistic director of the Cape Cod Theatre Project. 'No Child…' replaces 'The Amish Project' by Jessica Dickey, as part of the PRC2 lineup, PlayMakers’ acclaimed series in which each performance is followed by artist-audience discussion."
