One of the most acclaimed and provocative theatre artists of our time, Tony and Pulitzer Prize nominee Anna Deavere Smith (Let Me Down Easy; “Nurse Jackie”), shares her “most ambitious and powerful work to date” (Variety). Incredibly timely and moving, Notes from the Fielddepicts the personal accounts of individuals caught in America’s school-to-prison pipeline as they navigate inequities in their communities. Based on interviews with over 250 people living and working within a challenged system, Notes shines a light on a lost generation of American youth.
Age recommendation: 14 and up for some strong language and mature content
Note: Due to the interactive nature this performance, including an audience discussion, the actual run time may vary.
Notes from the Field is performed in two acts with an intermission that includes facilitator-lead audience breakout discussions.
