Production notes for No Child… ask audiences to "follow a teaching artist as [she heads] into one of New York's toughest inner-city schools. Over the course of six weeks, the teacher attempts to get the students to put on a play. Over a dozen characters including the school's parents, teachers, administrators, a janitor, and the students, for whom just getting to school every day can be a struggle, come to life in this bracing comedic tour-de-force."
Tickets to No Child… at TheaterWorks, 233 Pearl Street in Hartford, CT, are available by calling (860) 527-7838.
