Distance Learning

by Christian Kiley

Distance Learning takes us inside the student experience of trying to survive and thrive in a virtual classroom. What’s the future of virtual classrooms? Are they the new normal? Will we ever experience the old normal again? There are no rules to help overcome feeling alone. It’s time to get class started. Won’t you join us?

This ensemble play has been written specifically to be performed on an online platform.

Praise for Distance Learning

Michelene Hauber
St. Francis CSS
As a script written for online production, this was EXACTLY what we needed this year! This play explored some of the humour of the trials and tribulations of online learning, but it also allowed a glimpse into the difficult realities that many of us faced. My students really engaged with it and appreciated it. They also appreciated working on something that was tailored to their experience, instead of yet another "make it work" moment with staging and technology.
