Warriors Don't Cry


A Bushnell original production, Warriors Don’t Cry is a one-woman play adapted verbatim from the memoir of the same name by Dr. Melba Pattillo Beals, one of the "Little Rock Nine” who integrated Central High School in Arkansas in 1957. The inspiring performance chronicles the arduous and violent year in which nine black students risked their lives in pursuit of a good education. In the post-show Q&A, students explore themes of bullying, hate speech, and other issues of contemporary relevance. This show uses strong, historically accurate language, including the “n” word.
