A New York public school gets the bureaucratic run around in this moving play
Rundown school systems and earnest teachers are standard grist for the big screen, but Chad Beckim’s Off Broadway play breathes some new life into an old cliché. Teacher Adele Priam has seen it all in her 50 years as an educator in the New York Public School System, but what’s to come of the community when the Board of Education toys with shutting down the school? With a modern lens on the legacy we leave, this poignant tale has staying power. Hal Brooks directs. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival.
"...The action, under the direction of Hal Brooks, is riveting, and the acting so convincing you feel like it’s actually happening."
