One of the most heated political issues of the day is the American education system. Our children are falling behind on a global scale and while everyone has criticisms, very few have workable solutions. Teach for America takes this controversial topic and turns it into a compelling drama about a young idealist who thinks she can make a difference in a troubled urban school. Instead, she lands in the crossfire among discouraged students, angry adults, and overburdened administrators. Politics, prejudice, and sex collide in this story of good intentions gone wrong. Hilarious and heartbreaking, Teach for America puts you on the front lines of our nation's battle over education. Learn More

Created with and tailored to the dynamic talents of the A.C.T. M.F.A. Program class of 2011, this irresistible new play takes a sharp, entertaining, and darkly comic look at the frenzy surrounding multiple births. After 12 siblings are born simultaneously during a greedy corporation’s experimental procedure, their exploitative handlers propel them to instant childhood stardom as the Framingham Dodecatuplets, a pop sensation. But now that they are in their 20s and their cute act has lapsed into a cheap gimmick, how will this modern “family” navigate the world together—or apart? Brought to life by the wildly inventive imagination of Peter Sinn Nachtrieb, author of boom and the Bay Area hit comedy Hunter Gatherers, Litter whirls through a singular world of song and dance, taking the notion of sibling rivalry—and revelry—to astonishing extremes.
