Feedback form is now closed.
Experience a thought-provoking play devised over several months by 15 students from three high schools in different states.  This pilot program funded by the extraordinary generosity of Patrick and Margaret O’Connor and the McMullan Family Fund gives students from three Title I schools the opportunity to collaborate in the same room and across the airwaves, putting their personal marks on a play about the national crisis of opioid addiction.  During this process students study Sam Quinones Dreamland: The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic and Moment Work: Tectonic Theater Project's Process of Devising Theater by Moisés Kaufman and Barbara Pitts McAdams.  Each school works individually and shares their readings, ideas, and creativity with one another via Skype and video.  Once in Louisville, the schools will come together to present their unified artistry and promise.  SETC is pleased to welcome students from Gulfport High School (MS), Long Beach High School (MS), and Valley High School (KY).  SETC’s deepest thanks to our generous donors Patrick and Margaret O’Connor and the McMullan Family Fund, instructors Tonya Hays, Carrie Bellew, Kevin Gose, and collaborator Jane Dewey, Director of Arts Education at Danville Independent Schools for her help in bringing these groups together.
