Can a society legislate a change of heart? In Breakout Session (or Frogorse) a corporate training company is vying for the contract for de-escalation and anti-bias training with Cleveland’s Police Department. When the white facilitator tosses the approved curriculum out the window to try to ignite change her own way, the session spirals in unexpected ways. Can a mantis shrimp and a crocodile teach us about building trust and the strength of vulnerability? Commissioned by Cleveland Public Theatre with funding from the National New Play Network (NNPN). World Premiere.
