Teach | Play Reading

written by: Donna Hoke

directed by: Celia Mandela Rivera

THE STORY: Ten years ago, Ken and Chris were teacher and student. Now, they are principal and teacher, and Emerson's suspiciously high grade gives Ken license to grill Chris until the young teacher is forced to confront both past and present. While most plays question the audience, TEACH's unique construct exposes the gender biases that make audiences question themselves. A simple story, but TEACH is anything but simple.
