Cape Fear Regional Theatre Presents NO CHILD…
Cape Fear Regional Theatre presents the hilariously thought-provoking play "No Child..." October 31-November 17. Written by Nilaja Sun "No Child..." tells the story of Ms. Sun, a teaching artist in the Bronx at fictional Malcom X High School. In order to build community, Ms. Sun must navigate teenage angst and overworked administrators. "No Child..." sheds light on the life changing impact one teacher can have in their students' lives.
This show is directed by Kaja Dunn, an Assistant Professor of Acting at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Dunn was recently recognized in American Theatre Magazine for developing the Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Intimacy Initiative (EDIII) for Theatrical Intimacy Education (TIE). She is also directing the World Premiere of "Edges of Time" at PlayMakers Repertory Company in April. Performers include Tara Whitney Rison as Ms. Sun with Andrea Somera, Monet Marshall, Ja'Maul Johnson, and Brandon Rivera playing a wide range of characters including students and other school faculty.
CFRT is excited to announce that playwright Nilaja Sun will be attending the 7:30pm Military Appreciation Night performance of "No Child..." on Wednesday, November 6.
