A sort of Breakfast Club for teachers, EVELYN IN PURGATORY shows what happens when teachers land in their own version of detention. A claim of improper behavior by a failing student lands Evelyn Reid in the New York Public School’s Reassignment Center, one of a series of empty offices in the Department of Education Building. There she encounters a group of teachers who must sit and wait for their cases to be reviewed. Some are guilty, some are not, but all have long since lost any hope of returning to a classroom. Over the course of the school year, these colleagues form an unlikely alliance, reminding each other of forgotten passions, emerging to face life outside in unexpected new directions. They also learn French, workshop a screenplay…and learn some troubling secrets about each other.
EVELYN IN PURGATORY is directed by Jennifer Keith and co-produced by Patrick Kramer and Betsy Bossart.
Performance Dates: January 10-26
