No Child… continues all week at Krannert Center

This week, Krannert Center presents Nilaja Sun’s fascinating new work, No Child….

In this thought-provoking new play, a brave young drama teacher tackles a rough and rowdy urban classroom in the age of the No Child Left Behind Act.

Originally a one-person tour de force by playwright/performer Nilaja Sun, this version makes use of an ensemble of actors to play the various personalities found in and around a contemporary high school.

After opening in the Studio Theatre, the production will travel beyond Krannert Center to be presented in schools, churches, and community centers in the Champaign-Urbana area. Directed by Latrelle Bright, head of Inner Voices Social Issues Theatre group, No Child… continues February 14-16 at 7:30 PM and February 17 at 3:00 PM in the Studio Theatre of Krannert Center for the Performing Arts.
