Play Notes


ROOM 1214 by Michelle Kholos Brooks Sunday, May 5 | 4 PM Sponsored by Lee Moore & Dee Whited On Valentine's Day 2018, a nineteen-year-old boy walked into his former high school in Florida with an assault rifle. He killed fourteen students, three teachers, and injured seventeen more. Some of the worst damage was done when he shot into a Holocaust history class as students were studying hate crimes. Room 1214 is based on interviews with the real-life teacher of that class - who was in the room that fateful day. The play imagines what would happen if she had one more chance to teach in that classroom, and her students got a final say. It begs the question, “Can a history teacher rewrite history?” Michelle Kholos Brooks returns to the PlayLab, after her play Hostage was read in the 2017 Festival.
