Beverly Hills Playhouse Presents Alan Aymie's A CHILD LEFT BEHIND, Saturdays

A Child Left Behind, written and performed by Alan Aymie and directed by Paul Stein plays Beverly Hills Playhouse, 254 South Robertson Blvd., Beverly Hills, Calif., every Saturday at 8pm.

It was time to speak up. When LAUSD teacher and playwright Alan Aymie was given his second pink slip from the school district that he had worked for since 1998, and later "graded" by the LA Times, he decided it was time to use his writing to provide a voice for the teaching professional. While painting a compelling and powerful portrait of the daily challenges that teachers face in Los Angeles, Aymie also takes a poignant look at his own experiences of trying to teach his son who was recently assessed with Asperger’s Syndrome.

A CHILD LEFT BEHIND runs Saturdays (only) at 8pm. Tickets are $20- $25. Reservations: 702 KTC-TKTS (702-582-8587) or online at www.ktctickets.com.

ALAN AYMIE (Writer/Performer) is an award-winning playwright (Rap - AAPEX Best New Play). A Child Left Behind marks Aymie’s second solo piece, following his critically acclaimed, Child’s Play, called “powerful, touching, and funny,” by the LA Times. The play was seen at the HBO Workspace, the Aspen Comedy Festival, PSNBC and various theaters in Los Angeles, New York, DC, Boston, Ojai, and in Colorado.
