High School Performances

Ian Ruskin has performed a special version of “From Wharf Rats to Lords of the Docks” in high schools throughout California. It is designed to be performed within a single class period and raises specific issues relevant to students’ lives, which can be explored in the dicussion following the play. The perfomance is supplemented by a student questionnaire, lesson plans and list of (California) Academic Standards addressed by the play.

These performances were made possible with generous grants from the Diane Middleton and Silicon Valley Community Foundations.

He has also performed at universities and for teacher’ organizations
