MEAN: A play by Youth Performance Company
Thursday, Oct. 4, 2012
Howard Conn Fine Arts Center
Walden University’s Richard W. Riley College of Education and Leadership is sponsoring an educator night for the Youth Performance Company’s production of MEAN. This original drama, which runs Sept. 28–Oct. 14, tackles the tough subject of bullying and much more as it follows three students: a young woman being teased about her physical appearance, a young man being harassed for his sexual orientation, and a young Muslim woman being tormented by her peers because of her faith. With true-to-life dialogue and rock-infused music, this show brings audiences to their feet and gets everyone ready to stand up against bullying.
