SYNOPSIS: If you don't mind stirring up trouble with your productions, Beyond Tolerance could be just the show for you. Enter the bizarre world of U. Burnem, "the finest educational institution in the world," according to its founder, P.T. Burnem. Here, tolerance and political correctness are taken to extremes, and Gracious Mary Sensible, the school's newest student, finds that her old ideas of right and wrong don't make any sense here. Eventually she learns that conformity to the new order is not merely encouraged, it is absolutely required. Noncompliance could mean death. This two-time Vermont Regional Champion has been praised as a "tour de force" that uses "absurdist humor to address a serious and disturbing theme."

"It is a challenge and not for the faint of heart. It allows tremendous opportunity for creativity, a large cast, and (in our case)tutus and bicyle horns. If you have a cast that's eager to work hard and not afraid of a challgene or controversy and loves to put on an entertaining and thought provoking show --this one is for you."
By Angela Hill - Director - Kindred High School
