Agitprop, Must see, Thought-provoking, Resonant, Absorbing

See it if you are at all affected by student debt, want to hear the story from the mouths of those experiencing it, or know nothing about debt slavery

Don't see it if you are in the 1 to 3% of those having no problems paying for education or not concerned by possible debt crisis taking economy down again

For a previous production

"Rarely do more straightforward, traditional forms of storytelling hit on such urgent issues with such acute honesty and unfettered personal insight as. The writer, Alyea Pierce, and the cast of vibrant young actors are the steel spinal cord of the show…Directors Jennifer Little and Michael Pinnix have managed to balance the story with an ample dose of statistics and facts, told to the audience directly by the players. At no time does the piece feel too fact-heavy or theatrically thin."
