Dynamic Performance Highlights 'No Child' at Long Wharf

Nilaja Sun
Nilaja Sun gives a dynamic performance in her one-woman story, based on her personal experiences as a teaching artist in the New York public schools, in No Child, through April 18 on Long Wharf Theatre’s Stage II.

Sun faces an ambivalent student body, a constant stream of new teachers and impending Regents exams while struggling to put on a play about prison inmates at fictional Malcolm X High in the Bronx. Directed by Hal Brooks, Sun plays all the various characters in this funny, poignant look at one woman’s attempt to make a difference.

The 70-minute piece contains some language. Curtain times are Tuesdays at 7 pm., Wednesdays at 2 and 7 pm., Thursdays and Fridays at 8 pm, Saturdays at 3 pm and 8 pm, and Sundays at 2 pm and 7 pm. Tickets are $30-$65. For more information about the show or to purchase tickets, visit www.longwharf.org or call 203-787-4282.
