“13 Lessons” is an original performance work that explores the theme of adult literacy in our community. The original work was commissioned in 2004 by the Lindy Boggs National Center for Community Literacy. “13 Lessons” introduces and explores for the audience the issues, tensions and ironies of people who are part of the adult literacy drama in our communities. The 6 P.M. performance will also include a talk-back hosted by Dr. Patrice Sams-Abiodun, Director of Lindy Boggs National Center for Community Literacy.

Original music combined with a script highlights dramatically and at times humorously the challenges and barriers that so effectively trap 40% of our adult population. “13 Lessons” provides information, challenges stereotypes, raises compassion and understanding and effectively calls audiences to accept the mantra that “something must be done”.
