FIRST LOOK: First two performances start at $25*
*limited discount seats available

A high school senior is suspended when he tries to burn an American flag for a school art fair project. Undeterred, he conspires with his classmate, a slam poet in trouble for an expletive-laden poem, to enter a controversial new piece, setting off a free-speech firestorm in a small Ohio town. EDUCATION  is a provocative new play about two young people who fight for their right to express themselves in a society hostile to and fearful of change.
Theater provocateur Brian Dykstra returns to 59E59 with an explosive new play about free-speech, the dangers of polarization, and using art as a means for change. Follow #ArtIsActivism on Twitter and Instagram to take part in this important conversation happening both on and off stage.
