Does gender affect the way we view teacher-student relationships? Playwright Donna Hoke poses this question and many more in TEACH, a gender fluid story of questionable tension-building moments set in a modern-day high school. Curious minds can join Wordsmyth Theater Company for a reading of the play that promises to unpack issues of gender politics, bullying, favoritism, and student-teacher flirtation.This event will take place April 9, 2018 at Main Street Theater, 2540 Times Blvd and admission is FREE.
“Teach is an utterly fascinating and fresh take on teacher-student sexual harassment and power dynamics in the classroom and the world of academia. Hoke kept me on the edge of my seat throughout the play and I found my opinion on the characters and situation shifting again and again. The gender fluid construct of the play is a stroke of genius and something I’m now dying to see on stage.”
