“We ping both the absurdity of the educational system as well as the audience’s own memories of being students. When you open up that can of worms, the material to pull from and play with is boundless.” Justin Jain of The Beserker Residents

“Delightfully goofy.” The New York Times


Expect no pity here! Heads down, we’re taking attendance!

Welcome to The SimEdu Center, where you, the audience, will be tested, screened, and hung out to dry in preparation for your upcoming K–12 education. With the audience sitting in fifty child-sized classroom chairs and surrounded by black boards, It’s So Learning is a highly interactive and wild, comedic ride that guides you through the idiosyncratic absurdities of the nation’s school system. Pencils down, idiots!
