Broom Street Theater’s New Play by WORT 89.9FM Madison published on 2013-01-20T20:40:08Z From Broom Street Theater we had Director Tyler Falco Schott and Actress Kayla Stelzel come into the studio on Friday, January 11th, to talk about their upcoming play, Class. Class is based on a true event that took place in the late 1960’s. Inspired and saddened by the recent tragic event of Martin Luther King Jr’s death, A third grade teacher in Iowa decided to teach an unusual kind of lesson about prejudices. She came up with an experiment. The experiment was to treat the children different based on the color of their eyes. The play is the fictionalized retelling of that event. Although the subject matter is profound, the director manages to give the play a whimsical balance.
