Palm Beach Dramaworks, in partnership with PNC Bank, is pleased to introduce the Dramaworks Ethics Project Presented by PNC Arts Alive, an exciting, digital storytelling venture created to stimulate young people to think critically about their own ethics and principals. This interactive, multimedia project will be presented in conjunction with PBD's production of Donald Margulies' Collected Stories, which runs from February 3 - March 5 at the Don & Ann Brown Theatre.
Students from high schools throughout Palm Beach County will have the opportunity to participate in the program, which invites them to create digital stories addressing a range of issues including loyalty, creative freedom, plagiarism, and personal responsibility. All of these concerns are central to Collected Stories, in which the protégée of an established author writes a novel based on her mentor's relationship with a famous poet.
Students will examine, discuss, and debate two fundamental questions: What does it mean to be an ethical person? How do we identify what is ethical when we are faced with challenging decisions and strong external influences?
