Teachers don't make the highest wages, so many turn to other side jobs. That's the case for Susan Jeremy and Mary Fulham's P.S. 69 playing at lower Manhattan's Walker Space Feb. 3-25.
Based on the experiences of Jeremy, P.S. 69 accounts the life of a gay substitute teacher and her Ritalin-fueled, government neglected school children. Oh, and the teacher holds a second job as an exotic dancer.
The show won two comedy awards at the Montreal Fringe Festival 2000. Jeremy, who performs in and co-wrote the play, also won the Best Comedy 1998 award at the Montreal Fringe for her first work Was That My 15 Minutes?. Co-writer Fulham directs the production. Her last work was the recreation of Fame Takes A Holiday which played December at La MaMa E.T.C.
To be present at P.S. 69, playing at the Walker Space, 46 Walker Street (between Church and Broadway) call Ticket Central at (212) 279-4200.
