Speak Truth to Power
Presented by Four Rivers Charter School. Directed by Leah Plath and featuring FRCS Juniors, this production will bring the struggle for dignity and human rights to the Pioneer Valley.
Students in Modern World History are currently in a study of contemporary human rights issues through participation in a theatrical performance. Students will be presenting Voices From Beyond the Dark, a play by Ariel Dorfman, highlighting injustices many people face worldwide. The performance is a reader’s theater, which means that the actors become experts at the nuances of the script but don’t need to worry about formal acting on stage. We have been working for the last month in English and History to prepare.
