Affinity Lunch Minutes

Performance Dates: February 1-3, 8-10 at 8pm; February 4 at 3pm

When institutional change is needed, what voices will be heard? Can it actually change through its own mechanisms, or will it silence essential voices to sustain its ways? Ben and Jasmine are the only two Black teachers at Penn Valley, a private Quaker school. Jasmine is passionate and boundary pushing, while Ben has worked his way up the ranks at the school to be Diversity Dean thanks to his “agreeable” nature. A racially charged discipline decision ignites a divide at the school and in Jasmine and Ben’s collegial relationship.
