Is public education a constitutional right, an ethical obligation, or a line item?
Is money spent on public education “a wasted drop in a cracked bucket?”
If my kids aren’t in a public school, why should I even care?
School Play, a documentary-style theatre piece, draws on verbatim interviews and quotes with a variety of citizens on all sides of theschool funding issue.
Since ancient Greece, live theatre has been used to touch hearts and minds, connecting divisive moral or political conflicts to personal stakes and humanizing painful choices.
We have put genuine human faces to this story to further the connection to these issues and why they matter. By cutting through the numbers and political arguments, we will all discover ways to make things better for our children and our communities.
School Play is intended to galvanize Pennsylvanians and spark informed conversation around school funding. We envision School Play to be performed on stages, courthouse steps, church basements – anywhere and everywhere we can create a dialogue with our community about the state of our schools.
White Pines is proud to present a performance of this play Friday October 2nd at 8 pm at The White Pines Place. This is a free performance with donations accepted for PCCY and White Pines. Talk back and conversation to follow the performance.
