Playwright, poet, actor, public radio host of Reveal and all-around renaissance man Al Letson spent a summer working as a creative writing teacher in the humid ghettos of Jacksonville, Florida. He recounts his experiences and spreads critical awareness of America's school dropout rate in Summer in Sanctuary, a one-man play cataloging his day-to-day challenges with the high-risk kids he taught there. Through monologue, poetry and song, Letson exposes the intensity of America's dropout rate and his own deep connections to a group of children he initially disliked. Catch Letson at the Marsh in San Francisco.
