Greenidge is never one to shy away from topics that fuel fiery debates [and] seems to have an uncanny sense of the world around her.

The Boston Globe

Welcome to Gleason Street—where the teachers are underpaid, the head of school is overwhelmed, and we do NOT talk about that thing that happened at the last parent council meeting (so don’t bother asking about it).

As the audience tours the struggling elementary school, each classroom explored and each encounter witnessed could upend our assumptions about the ways we educate, govern, and collectively strive toward the greater good. Equal parts playful and provoking, Obie Award winner Kirsten Greenidge’s Greater Good is a one-of-a-kind theatrical experience.

Greater Good will be staged throughout the halls and classrooms of Back Bay’s Commonwealth School. Audiences will experience the play in small groups—guided from room to room—as the story moves backward through time, its scenes interlocking like puzzle pieces as we hurdle back towards last spring’s fateful meeting of the parent council.

 

Greater Good is an immersive performance in which the audience will be guided around a school building. The audience path includes three flights of stairs and may include periods of standing, though we are dedicated to providing accommodations to all audience members. All spaces are accessible to wheelchairs and other mobility devices via an elevator. With any accessibility needs, questions, and concerns, please call the A.R.T. Ticket Services at 617.547.8300 or email access@amrep.org.

By Kirsten Greenidge
Directed by Steven Bogart
Produced by Company One Theatre in collaboration with the A.R.T. and with support from the Mellon Foundation’s National Playwright Residency Program administered in partnership with HowlRound
