LELA ELAM 

For one performance only, GableStage presents a return engagement of their acclaimed production of No Child, with award-winning actress Lela Elam. Admission is FREE as part their Educational Programming. Don't miss out on this inspiring play. 

No Child shines a light on the struggles and miracles of America's public schools. The actor transforms herself into an entire classroom of children, their teachers, their parents, the principal, the janitor and even the security guard with a metal detector at the front door. A master class on heartbreak and humor which proves that one passionate person can still make a difference.

Nilaja Sun wrote and originally performed the Off-Broadway smash No Child. For her creation and performance of No Child, Sun garnered a Lucille Lortel Award, an Outer Critics Circle Award, a Theatre World Award, an Obie Award, the John Gassner Playwriting Award, and was named the Best One-Person Show at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. Over the 2007-2008 season, she toured No Child to several regional theatres including the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, American Repertory Theatre, Center Theatre Group, and Berkeley Repertory Theatre.

Lela Elam, one of South Florida's leading actresses, will be performing all sixteen roles in the play at GableStage, where she previously won the Best Actress Carbonell for her performance in In the Continuum, and was nominated for the Best Supporting Actress Carbonell for Intimate Apparell
