Nilaja Sun's one-woman show, No Child..., has extended for two weeks at off-Broadway's Barrow Street Theatre. The show will now run through August 14. The return engagement of No Child..., which originally ran for 311 performances at the Barrow Street Theatre in 2006, opened on June 19.
Based on her own experience as a visiting artist in the New York City public schools, No Child... allows Sun to transform with rapid-fire precision into the teachers, students, parents, administrators, janitors and security guards who inhabit a big-city school. (Learn more about the show in this Broadway.com video feature.)
After her initial off-Broadway run, Sun embarked on a national and international tour of No Child… and took home 17 awards including an Obie, a Lucille Lortel Award, two Outer Critics Circle Awards (including outstanding new American play), a Theatre World Award, Helen Hayes Award and L.A. Ovation Award.
