Theatre Espresso uses Theatre in Education to teach young people to think critically. We believe that student participation is the key to intellectual engagement with history, issues of human rights, and the concept of justice. Our historical dramas empower students to explore the parallels between historical events and contemporary issues. By putting students in role as Supreme Court Justices, state senators, or members of a jury, our actors invite them to reflect on and debate the issues raised by our plays. We are committed to the idea that educational theatre provides an ideal learning medium for promoting civic engagement. Learn more...
