Matrix Theatre Presents NO CHILD..., Now thru 10/13
by BWW News Desk - Sep 20, 2013

Anyone concerned about the future of urban education in the U.S. will want to see No Child… by Nilaja Sun. This thought-provoking play examines the effect a young teaching artist has on a sophomore class in a failing inner city school. She's been charged with teaching the students drama and ultimately producing a performance of Our Country's Good over her six-week residency there. Deftly performed by actors Morgan Breon and Sunkari Clifford Sykes, Sun's play combines humor and heartbreak to take a realistic but optimistic look at the plight of urban education and the future of not only its students but our entire country. These stories are told through the eyes of 16 different characters - teachers, students, parents, administrators, a janitor, and a security guard - 15 of which are played by Ms. Breon, and 1 played by Sykes. The play runs from September 20 through October 13. Today and Saturday performances begin at 8 pm, with Sunday performances at 3 pm. A Talkback with community members and/or educators will follow each performance. All productions are presented at Matrix Theatre located at 2730 Bagley in the heart of Detroit's Mexicantown. Ticket prices are $20 for general admission and $15 for students and senior citizens (65+) with proper ID. Group rates are available.

BWW Reviews: OUR COUNTRY'S GOOD Extols the Virtues of Theater
by Jeff Davis - Oct 25, 2013

It should be no surprise that as a lover of theater, I firmly believe in the transitive power of the performing arts. Any production has the power to elicit some emotional response from the audience, but theater often does more. Studies have shown that participating in the performing arts helps students improve their performance in other academic areas. While the impact of the arts in schools is widely known, the use and impact of theater and the arts in prison systems is somewhat less talked about. Nevertheless, theater has been used by penile systems for centuries as a way to rehabilitate prisoners, and that unorthodox idea is at the core of Our Country's Good, now playing at UT-Austin. The infrequently produced Tony nominated play, written by Timberlake Wertenbaker, is a completely engrossing love letter to the virtues of theater and a thrilling depiction of a peculiar moment in Australian history.

Matrix Theatre to Present NO CHILD..., 9/20-10/13
by BWW News Desk - Aug 15, 2013

Anyone concerned about the future of urban education in the U.S. will want to see No Child… by Nilaja Sun. This thought-provoking play examines the effect a young teaching artist has on a sophomore class in a failing inner city school. She's been charged with teaching the students drama and ultimately producing a performance of Our Country's Good over her six-week residency there. Deftly performed by actors Morgan Breon and Sunkari Clifford Sykes, Sun's play combines humor and heartbreak to take a realistic but optimistic look at the plight of urban education and the future of not only its students but our entire country. These stories are told through the eyes of 16 different characters - teachers, students, parents, administrators, a janitor, and a security guard - 15 of which are played by Ms. Breon, and 1 played by Sykes. The play runs from September 20 through October 13. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 8 pm, with Sunday performances at 3 pm. A Talkback with community members and/or educators will follow each performance. All productions are presented at Matrix Theatre located at 2730 Bagley in the heart of Detroit's Mexicantown. Ticket prices are $20 for general admission and $15 for students and senior citizens (65+) with proper ID. Group rates are available. For further information, and to purchase tickets, call 313 967 0599, or go to www. matrixtheatre.org. (more...)
