Nilaja Sun’s insightful and hilarious play “No Child…” will be staged March 3-13 at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts.
The play, which takes an inside look at issues facing students at a Bronx high school, has been hailed as an off-Broadway hit, earning Sun 17 different awards. The show is based on her experiences as a teaching artist in New York City’s public schools. In “No Child…” a group of students at the fictional Malcolm X High School prepare for a play of their own, “Our Country's Good,” a 1988 play by Timberlake Wertenbaker.
The play will run from March 3-6 and again from March 10-13 in the Black Box Theater. The March 6 and 13 performances are at 2 p.m., while all other performances will take place at 8 p.m. Tickets are $12.50 for the general public and $7.50 for students, staff and faculty. Tickets are available online at OlyTix.org or by calling (360) 753-8586
