Mr. May from Memphis TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Would Like Another New Play, Please

Help me give my students a new play to add to their dramatic repertoire and understanding of formal development! This play, which won the 2018 Pulitzer Prize, will help my students explore disability through the paradigm of plays.

My Students

My students are a wonderful mixture of eleventh and twelfth graders in Memphis who take college classes for credit at our dual-enrollment high school which operates in conjunction with CBU.

These students are passionate and motivated young people from all walks of life, representing the rich racial, cultural, and socioeconomic diversity of our city; they must apply in order to be accepted, even though it is a public school, which also highlights their commitment to their own education.

My students deserve the best, as they always put in their best effort!

My Project

Acquiring this play will help my students understand and synthesize new developments in drama. In addition, it will help them further their sense of sympathy, empathy, and understanding in regards to physical disability.

This play will further my students' growth as they explore new American plays.

With your help, we can investigate and interrogate how drama influences cognitive bias and logical fallacy as well.

Reading this play will widen our scope of the history of American drama and increase our understanding of contemporary drama and its subjects. Please help us on our journey through the history of playwriting in America!
