East Liberty Live: REENAH GOLDEN - NO CHILD

The nationally acclaimed and award-winning, No Child, is a one woman play set in a tough, Bronx high school that traces the efforts of a young teacher to engage a class of uninspired and underachieving 10th graders by challenging the students to put on a play. Funny and buoyant, yet never shying away from the sobering truths of the urban lives and neighborhoods it depicts. No Child, celebrates the positive difference one passionate person and a class of inspired kids can make in a troubled place.
