Synopsis

The play looks at the stressors and strains of the lives of teachers and students who find themselves marginalized by an education system that was supposed to support and develop them. For most LGBTQIA+ teachers whose entire careers are spent in school, having to mask their identities while having to teach their students to discover, accept and love their true selves is ironic and potentially counterproductive to their goals in education. What can they do, or what has to be done to ensure that they get the most out of an education that doesn’t support their best interests?
