Summary

Ms. Sun is a charming, cash-strapped teaching artist put in charge of a rambunctious group of 10th graders at a public school in the Bronx. While directing her students in a play, Ms. Sun must lift them up while everything around them is falling apart.

Written and performed by acclaimed playwright Nilaja Sun and based on her eight-year experience with arts education in New York City, No Child is an inspiring, multi-character solo show that examines America’s broken school system - and reveals the life and love that fill every classroom.

South Bronx native

I felt like I went back in time to the days in the schools of the South Bronx. The experiences, struggles, triumphant stories were so prevalent in the Bronx then are they are now. Thank you for telling our story. ❤️

Good story, well performed

It’s a good audiobook, just get over the first 15 minutes. It will take some time to get into the story, once you’ve done the first few minutes you’ll probably enjoy it.

one woman one act play

It made me laugh; it made me weep. My mom was a public school teacher for over twenty years. Several friends of mine are public school teachers now. Sun captures both what is demoralizing and what is inspiring about teaching public school, particularly in underfunded areas. The characters that Sun portrays are dynamic and distinct - I would have been impressed to hear that a whole cast performed the show; to hear that Sun performed the whole thing solo? Incredible.
