Writing and Performing the One Woman Show and the State of the Business by Karen Sklaire
Ripple of Hope, One Teacher’s Journey to Make an Impact
Written and Performed by Karen Sklaire
February 16th – 7:30p, Mainstage Theater
A young idealist from Connecticut, inspired by teacher-as-hero movies, begins her career teaching drama in the South Bronx. In this autobiographical solo show, Karen navigates her way through the troubled NYC school system as she struggles to engage her challenging students with everything from ‘gangsta’ improvs to a rap version of ‘Annie’. Her dedication to her students and her desire to make a difference impels her to find a way to please an ever-changing administration in order to keep her job. She will soon realize that in a world of budget cuts, rubber rooms, and the common core the question is not “what’s wrong with me?” but, rather, “what’s wrong with this system”?
