A high school senior is suspended when he tries to burn an American flag for a school art fair project. Undeterred, he conspires with his classmate, a slam poet in trouble for an expletive-laden poem, to enter a controversial new piece, setting off a free speech firestorm in a small Ohio town. Education is a provocative new play about two young people who fight for their right to express themselves in a society hostile to and fearful of change.
Come binge-watch new works-in-progress by playwrights: Josh Bonzie, Lindsay Joy, Darrel Holnes, Alexis Scheer, and Calamity West! Sanguine will provide the space, artists, and resources for playwrights to work on parts or the entirety of a piece at any stage of development. The workshops will culminate in a public performance each evening, a showcase of a day's work. Join us each night to hear what comes of this collaborative process.
In a small town in the deep south, two librarians are unlikely friends. When outside forces threaten their safe space, each has to decide what to save: their friendship or themselves. Something has to burn.
