CEE in the Village Voice

A group of students from three high schools in the city wrote and star in 10467, a fifty-minute play about the educational inequities they've faced as a result of the city's failure to act. With joint support from Epic Theatre Ensemble and the Campaign for Educational Equity at Teachers College, more than two dozen students will show, through scenes depicting day-to-day experiences, original rap songs, and monologues, the direct impact violations of their constitutionally guaranteed educational rights have had on them.

The play, which premiered at the National Black Theater in Harlem in August, makes no effort to hide how personal the problem is: The title comes from the zip code for the Bronx School for Writing and Communication Arts, which many of the students who will perform attend. (Students also come from the Urban Assembly School for the Performing Arts in Harlem and the Chelsea Career and Technical High School.) To learn more, click here
