EDUCATION

By Brian Dykstra
Directed by Margarett Perry
With Matthew Boston, Bruce Faulk, Wesley T. Jones, Elizabeth Meadows Rouse, and Jane West

A high school senior is suspended when he tries to burn an American flag for a school art fair project. Undeterred, he conspires with his classmate, a slam poet in trouble for an expletive-laden poem, to enter a controversial new piece, setting off a free speech firestorm in a small Ohio town. EDUCATION is a provocative new play about two young people who fight for their right to express themselves in a society hostile to and fearful of change.

Theater provocateur Brian Dykstra returns to 59E59 with an explosive new play about free speech, the dangers of polarization, and using art as a means for change. Follow #ArtIsActivism on Twitter and Instagram to take part in this important conversation happening both on and off stage.
