What an incredible event! On December 13th we were able to bring THE TEACHER cast and their families together for a special screening of our work so far. We watched our 12 minute proof of concept scene together as well as half an hour of roughly compiled, largely improvised material.
Not only was it inspiring to see the students' reactions to their performances on-screen, but a powerful affirmation as well. Following the showing a lively conversation evolved around public education, new teachers and in-class teacher-student dynamics revealing that The Teacher will not only appeal to broad audiences but also serve as a powerful tool to spark dialogue.
