How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Safiya Martinez is a personable storyteller. We meet students, friends, and even her mother, in this monologue about her trial by fire as a new teacher in one of New York City's toughest schools! Martinez slips in sophisticated references while keeping the performance fun to watch. Those who know about social conditions in New York will recognize the references to old-law tenements and the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. Whether intentionally or not, Martinez links the social struggles of early 20th-century immigrant workers with those of early 21st-century low-income, minority and disabled middle school students. I will be watching eagerly for new works by Safiya Martinez. Go see this show!
