A Wisconsin Premiere by experienced educator Joe Zarrow.

Kay Josephs wants to make a difference; she quits her corporate job and heads for Chicago’s South Side to teach English. Her department colleagues run the gamut: old-hand Denise is near retirement, rebellious Shelley will cut any corner for her kids and Ola tries to keep everyone — and the dilapidated copy machine — happy. But this year will be extra tough. Principal Banerjee’s dedication to the standardized test could put them all out of a job. Finally, a play that celebrates the resourcefulness, sacrifice and devotion of the best among us: our teachers.

Cez says: “How much do we owe the teachers who care that we learn? Our educational system is not without its challenges, but Joe Zarrow encourages us to root for those engaged in the struggle and who teach us that the most important thing is learning itself.”
