RESPONSE: 'Trumbull High School's Production of RENT' (2013)

The Dramatists Guild responds to the proposed cancellation of a student production of RENT. The DLDF presents the first ever DLDF Defender Award to Larissa Mark, a high school senior from Trumbull, CT who successfully organized her community in opposition to her school’s sudden cancellation of their production of Rent, ultimately forcing the production’s reinstatement. This new award from the DLDF honors Ms. Mark’s work in support of free expression in the dramatic arts.
