Nilaja Sun’s No Child follows the story of a visiting teacher in a 10th grade classroom at a high school in the Bronx. The one-person play includes 16 characters, a mixture of students, teachers, and administration. The play was created by Sun based on her eight-year experience with arts education in New York City schools. The story is narrated by the school’s longtime janitor. Pillsbury House Theatre co-artistic director and Macalester alumna Faye M. Price is the guest director.
The play is the senior capstone project of Niara Williams ‘18, and is designed by Ming Lian ‘19, Richard Graham ’19, Charlotte Houghton ’20, and Fiona Shaw ’18.
