Breaking Barriers:
Expanding our view of the world!

“And in such a world of conflict...of victims and executioners, it is the job of thinking people...not to be on the side of the executioners.”
-Howard Zinn
"A People's History of the United States: 1492-Present"

I seek to use theater as a means to help students break the barriers between themselves and others created by racism, sexism, stereotypes, etc.

This past fall, we explored She Eats Apples by Stephanie Brownell, a play which uses the structure of a fairy tale to explore a teenager's journey into womanhood. The play highlights how images drawn from mythology, artwork, and magazine covers perpetuate gender-specific roles. As a result, topics such as victim-blaming and rape are addressed.

Through the use of games, live performance, and post-show discussion, Breaking Barriers empowers students to express their unique thoughts and opinions.
