Select tickets are available for the Off Broadway production of "No Child...." on November 1st in benefit of Behind the Book, a literacy nonprofit working with low-income students in NYC public schools. After the performance, there will be a Talk Back session featuring actress and playwright Nilaja Sun, who brings to life more than a dozen students and educators in a story about a troubled NYC public school.

Nilaja Sun has received extensive critical acclaim for both her performance and the play, with The New York Times praising "A marvelous performance," and The New Yorker proclaiming "[an] astounding one-woman performance piece....Like Lily Tomlin and Whoopi Goldberg in their early work, Sun brings us not her world but the world."
