Six high school students are forced into the world of standardized testing. What does it mean to be of “National Merit” status? What is the cost of toiling for this title? Who even gets to achieve it? With humor and heart, Valen-Marie Santos’s new play NATIONAL MERIT scrutinizes academic achievement, socioeconomic privilege, and racial injustice within a private school setting. BoHo is thrilled to partner once again with Northwestern University to present this in-development reading from an up-and-coming playwright.
