Join Prospect Park Alliance for an evening of education, reflection and conversation with Nothing About Us: a rigorous, passionate and hilarious exploration of educational segregation written and performed by NYC public high school students. Commissioned by community partner New York Appleseed  with support from Live Here, Learn Here and presented by Epic Theater Ensemble, transformation, empathy, and youth voice drive the conversation in this 30-minute touring play. After the performance, join the cast for an informal Campfire Conversation to hear about the student’s experiences and further explore the themes of the play.

Seating is limited and first come, first served. Please RSVP to let us know you are coming.
