'1776' Educational Resources
We believe a great play raises questions about the human condition, and a great educational experience allows students an opportunity to reflect upon those questions and begin to discover their own answers. We have designed these activities and the companion videos to help you prepare your students to see the play and to follow up the performance with options for discussion, reflection, and creativity.

Page (Violet) and Diane Paulus (Waitress) with a cast that reflects multiple representations of race, gender, and ethnicity. You may never think about our country—who we are and why—the same way again.
