Toys 101: The Last Class
About Toys 101
Written and Performed by Jonathan Alexandratos
After years of teaching at a conservative high school, one teacher fears the oppressive curriculum they have been forced to regurgitate has left their students with no way to see themselves in the limited education they've received. Today, for their final class of the year (and possibly their career), this teacher has decided to change that. The teacher, by using the toys that have followed them their entire life, carves an academic path to their own Non-Binary identity, and, in so doing, advocacy for the beautiful uniqueness of all their students. Taught by Jonathan Alexandratos, this immersive, theatrical class uses toys, discussions, literature, projected images, and community to build a hopeful, Queer story. You are the student. The semester is almost over. Class is in session, one last time.
