Special One Night Engagement!
Special engagement of Nilaja Sun's award-winning No Child... to benefit La Jolla Playhouse education programs.

No Child...

No Child...

Saturday, January 30, 2010

Mandell Weiss Theatre

Written and Performed by Nilaja Sun
Directed by Hal Brooks

No Child... is a tour-de-force exploration of the New York City public school system performed by acclaimed actress Nilaja Sun. Inspired by her experiences as a teaching artist, Sun fearlessly transforms with rapid-fire precision into the teachers, students, parents, administrators, janitors, and security guards who inhabit our schools and shape the future of America. An insightful, hilarious and touching piece created in response to “No Child Left Behind,” this exciting new work highlights how one determined woman can change the lives of countless others and expose the inequity of the American public school system.

Proceeds from No Child... benefit La Jolla Playhouse's education and outreach programs.
