Product Description

The Los Angeles community of Compton has become infamous thanks to news reports and { ap} music lyrics that have portrayed it as an African-American neighborhood brought to the edge of destruction by corruption and black-on-black crime. In 2003, a handful of students and teachers at Compton's Dominguez High School decided to do something that hadn't happened at the school in more than 20 years -- put on a play. When it became obvious that the financially strapped school (which had recently canceled its football program) couldn't provide a budget for sets or costumes, the students did what money-conscious high-school theater departments have been doing for decades -- they staged {$Thornton Wilder}'s {+Our Town}, a {drama} commonly performed without the use of sets or large props. But what would {$Wilder}'s allegorical story of life in a small turn-of-the-century Midwestern hamlet mean to kids in Compton? And would the inexperienced students and faculty be able to bring it off? {#OT: Our Town} is a {documentary} which looks at Dominguez High's brave experiment and the people who struggled to make it happen. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
