Directed by Doug Mackie

Based on a true story, Class is a comic exploration of the dark side of being human.

In 1968, Riceville, Iowa third-grade teacher, Jane Elliott, wanted to teach - really teach - her students a lesson about prejudice. It was the week after Martin Luther King's assassination. The lesson she taught worked so well it resulted in her termination, two documentaries (by Frontline and PBS) and forever changed the lives of her students.

In this two-act modern re-telling, following the introduction of her new lesson the teacher is confronted by an angry parent accompanied by the school principal. But the parent and the principal quickly become students themselves, and learn the lesson with hilarious and tragic consequences.
