Up Theater Company & People’s Theatre Project Present The Chalkboard Trilogy

The Chalkboard Trilogy follows three teachers across three provocative landscapes as they struggle with their students and their environments to pass on the gift of literacy:

In South Carolina, on the cusp of the Civil Rights Movement, when literacy meant freedom, an old man and his niece sign up for a forbidden voter’s registration class.

In present-day Washington Heights, a tutor’s six-year attempt to teach reading to a boy who neither desires nor appreciates the gift – until he is thrust suddenly into manhood.

In Taliban-controlled Afghanistan, where girls are forbidden to learn to read, a teacher and her student meet under extraordinary and dangerous circumstances to light the light.
