Over the course of a tense parent/teacher conference, a grieving mother and an emotionally overwhelmed fifth-grade teacher engage in a fraught conversation about the recent suspension and subsequent tragedy involving Gidion. The boy may have been the victim of bullying -- or he may have been the bully. The note he left gives no clues. As the women challenge each other, they earn our compassion and a few much-needed laughs, but can they untangle the knot of questions that Gidion left behind? The enthralling discussion develops into a dramatically charged study of what happens when freedom of expression, the failure of our school systems and personal responsibility collide. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“A ripped-from-the-headlines drama” —Minneapolis Star Tribune
redshirts explores a sports scandal involving college football players at a Division I university and investigates the multifaceted social behavior of student athletes. Eighteen-year-old Dante Green is an all-star running back at Tennessee Southern, but is less than stellar in the classroom. His academic integrity is called into question when an English professor accuses Dante of plagiarism. Suddenly caught between pride and insecurity, Dante, along with his coach and teammates, are at a moral crossroads. The line between right and wrong is blurred as these characters tackle the conflict between commercial success and academic integrity.
This production marks the world premiere.
