Race. Sex. Power politics.
The New York sensation tears up the Fringe

Named one of The New York Times 25 Best American Plays in the last 25 years

WINNER: 2017 Obie Award for Best New American Theatre Work
The New York Times Critics’ Pick & Best of 2016
Time Out New York Critics’ Pick & Best of 2016

Good morning, America! Welcome to Hanover Middle School, where a pair of teachers are getting down and dirty with today’s lesson. Going round after round on the mat of American history, the duo tackles race, sex and power politics in this R-rated, kaleidoscopic and fearless comedy.

What starts as a regular teaching lesson about Civil War in the US, quickly descends into social and political commentary on race relations in contemporary America, where the teachers have as much to learn as the pupils in this classroom.

A poignant exploration of one of the most toxic of American legacies, disguised as an ordinary teaching exercise.

Contains nudity, adult themes and strong language.

Edinburgh 2018. 15 Shows. 7 venues. One hell of a festival.
