NOTHING ABOUT US
NOTHING ABOUT US is a rigorous, passionate and hilarious exploration of educational segregation written and performed by those most affected and least consulted: NYC Public High School students. What does separate but equal mean to us today? Transformation, empathy, and youth voice drive the conversation in this thirty-minute touring play by Epic NEXT. “Nothing about us without us is for us.”
How many jobs demand that employees come up with the right answer on the spot, from memory, while the clock is ticking? How often are we forbidden to ask coworkers for help? How common is it for working professionals to be given a secret pencil-and-paper exam?

Their findings will surprise you. OVERDRIVE is a twenty-five minute touring play that powerfully poses the question: Do we truly measure what we value and value what we measure?
