This Fall, 30 middle school students collaborated to create the original play, Love Untitled. Together, they bravely told the story of not-so-ordinary students navigating a not-so-ordinary love triangle. Their story is about embracing difference, confronting bullies and the
paths we must take to acceptance.
Last week, a team of professional actors performed their words for an audience of 150 fellow students, teachers, parents and friends. For some in the room, it was uncomfortable to watch ideas they were not quite ready to accept. For others, it was a shining example of bravery and tolerance.
To make sure our young playwrights were protected both on and off the stage, we partnered with the school psychologist throughout the semester. Her words before the show are
a true call to action.
“Little heroes, as an adult I’m hearing you loud and clear as you teach tolerance everywhere, and I’m not giving up because you, the students, the change agents who wrote this play, are inspirational. And as adults we have to do better!”
