It’s September once again at Lincoln High School and Nora O’Reilley is determined not to be defeated by disillusionment.  That’s no easy task in the English Department’s teachers’ lounge, occupied by a motley staff of burnouts, survivors and connivers.  Then in walks Victoria Turner: Nora’s former star student and valedictorian. Victoria has been hired as the new English teacher to replace Susan Wagner who, to the utter dismay, disbelief and resentment of the other teachers in the department, has been elevated to Assistant Principal.  Nora and Victoria battle the inanity of the school system as well as the cynicism, despair and personal agendas of their colleagues.  They become increasingly despondent; Victoria because she feels in over her head as a new teacher and Nora because she realizes that she’s losing her zeal and efficacy.  Victoria turns to Nora for support, who gladly gives it in a subconscious attempt to help herself.  But can Nora help Victoria?  Can Victoria help Nora?  And can Nora help herself?  The winner of two prestigious awards, the Neil Simon Festival 2013 New Play Contest and the Theatre Conspiracy 2013 New Play contest, All My Raisins in the Son ripples with laughter as John Twomey plucks the strings of public school paranoia.  It will have you rolling your eyes and laughing in your seat as you think back on your own tenures in and out of the classroom.  Is this really what goes on behind the closed doors of the teachers’ lounge?  If so, we are all in trouble!  $20 Single Use Copyright Fee plus $60 Royalty per Performance for Amateur Theatre.  Professional Theatre Royalties Calculated on Application.
