Project Tolerance

Created and performed by teen actors, Project Tolerance is designed to raise the consciousness of its audiences through an original play that takes on contemporary societal ills while also educating about the Holocaust. Using the Holocaust as an extreme example of the consequences of racism, the Project Tolerance performance includes recent scenarios which tackle discrimination, bullying, apathy, and intolerance. These social issues are dramatized in a compelling theatrical style that stimulates middle and high school students to think, discuss and perhaps even act on what they have seen. By witnessing other teenagers dealing head-on with issues of bigotry, discrimination, anti-semitism, homophobia, exclusion of people with learning needs or disabilities, and fear of the “other,” they are inspired to consider their own views on these subjects and to take stock of their personal values and behaviors.

Project Tolerance is a free performance, made possible by the generous bequest of Ambassador William B. Schwartz, Jr. Donations are welcomed.
