Forgotten Future: The Education Project


Original Run Dates: September 18th - October 26th, 2014

Remount: February 12th - March 22nd, 2015


Inspired by the dysfunction of the American education system, Forgotten Future: The Education Project explores three students' unique perspectives of the Chicago school system and how it both serves and is failing them and their potential future. Constructed from extensive research, the play tackles the key issues of inequities, cultural barriers and testing. The result is a unique, immersive theater piece designed to entertain and inform, as well as motivate dialogue.
