January 11 through February 3, 2013


In this call-to-arms, Portland playwright Susan Mach shares an eye-opening look at the current state of America's public education system. What does navigating a minefield of competition, quotas, privatization, corporate welfare, litigation and obfuscation have to do with teaching Johnny to read? Startling in its immediacy and passionate in its plea to "Save Our Schools," A Noble Failure features company members Jacklyn Maddux, Maureen Porter, and Bruce Burkhartsmeier, joined by guest artists John San Nicolas, Gavin Hoffman, and Rolland Walsh.
