Speak Truth to Power

Speak Truth to Power

Thursday, June 14, 2018, 7:00 pm
Presented by Four Rivers Charter School. Directed by Leah Plath and featuring FRCS Juniors, this production will bring the struggle for dignity and human rights to the Pioneer Valley.

Students in Modern World History are currently in a study of contemporary human rights issues through participation in a theatrical performance. Students will be presenting Voices From Beyond the Dark, a play by Ariel Dorfman, highlighting injustices many people face worldwide. The performance is a reader’s theater, which means that the actors become experts at the nuances of the script but don’t need to worry about formal acting on stage. We have been working for the last month in English and History to prepare.

The Junior class will perform the play on Thursday, June 14, at 7:00pm at the Shea Theater in Turners Falls. The performance will be a fundraiser for The Traprock Center for Peace and Justice at GCC. The cost of entry will be on a sliding scale from $5-$15, though no one will be turned away. We hope you will attend, but keep in mind the intense content will be difficult for many, including younger viewers. Students will be shuttled from Four Rivers to The Shea and should be picked up at the theater at the end of the performance. They will be provided dinner that evening.

Please feel free to contact Mr. Wilson with any questions at awilson@fourriverscharter.org or at (413) 775-4577 ext. 303.
