Oak Cliff Cultural Center & Latino Cultural Center present Stand-Up Tragedy
The Oak Cliff Cultural Center and the Latino Cultural Center, in collaboration with local theater artists Stephanie Cleghorn Jasso and Ruben Carrazana, will present Stand-Up Tragedy, a play by Bill Cain. For the first time, two of Dallas' cultural centers are teaming up to produce a professional theatrical production from the ground up. With a cast of professional actors and local high school students, raps, basketball games, and only an empty space to tell the story with audience seating onstage, Stand-Up Tragedy is an adrenaline-pumping and intense theatrical experience.
Set in a Catholic school on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, Stand-Up Tragedy is a play that tells the story of a group of young students and the teachers whose job it is to help them graduate, but they all face one seemingly insurmountable obstacle: the statistics that say that most of these kids are not going to make it.
