One of the most hailed and provocative theatre artists of our time, Anna Deavere Smith, leads a new installation of powerful first person storytelling in Notes From the Field, in preparation for a two week run at the Royal Court in London’s West End. Urgent and inspiring, it depicts the personal accounts of students, parents, teachers and administrators caught in America’s school-to-prison pipeline. Investigating a justice system that pushes minors from poor communities out of the classroom and into incarceration, Notes From the Field shines a light on a lost generation of American youth. Drawn from interviews with more than 250 people living and working within a challenged system, Anna Deavere Smith continues her mastery of the documentary solo performance by stimulating awareness and, ultimately, change for the better. “Audacious and mind-opening.” – Time Out New York
“She creates a dialogue out of monologues among souls who, in real life, might never have occasion to speak to one another. And with an expert technical team Ms. Smith draws us into an ever-mutating, ever-expanding discussion.” – The New York Times
