WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Producer Betty Ann Besch Solinger presents the World Premiere of 'the seminal school year of 1968 and the students who were making a difference' in Learning Curve by Rogelio Martinez, directed by Michael Sexton. Set amidst the true events of the armed takeover of a building by African American students at a leading northeastern University in 1968, Learning Curve chronicles the complex relationships that are forged between students at an Ivy League university, and the heavy responsibilities placed on them to effect change. The play focuses on David, a young African American in his turbulent first year in college falling in love with a white student who is also the daughter of an important professor. When his girlfriend takes some controversial photos of him and exhibits them anonymously, he becomes the target of his fellow African Americans who berate him for letting a white woman tell his "story". It is difficult for him not to get caught up in the maelstrom as the play rushes towards its climactic conclusion.
