Facing Our Truth — Now Through Monday

5 Feb

As I mentioned last week, Facing Our Truth: 10-Minute Plays on Trayvon, Race, and Privilege will be opening tonight at The National Black Theatre in New York. In addition, one-night only readings of the plays will be presented by Woolly Mammoth Theatre/African Continuum Theatre Company in Washington, DC and The New World Performance Laboratory in Akron, OH.

Facing Our TruthOriginally commissioned by Keith Josef Adkins at The New Black Fest, these plays are all inspired by Trayvon Martin and the trial verdict of his shooter George Zimmerman. Not only are they incredible pieces of theatre trying desperately to make sense of injustice, but I get to see my play Some Other Kid presented with the work of friends whose talents have always amazed me. Please come see what Marcus Gardley, Mona Mansour, Dominique Morisseau, several other endlessly talented folks, and I have created and keep the issues of racial profiling and gun violence part of the national conversation.

Facing Our Truth runs February 5 – 10, and I will be at the opening  performance tonight and the closing performance on Monday. On the closing night performance, I’ll be joining the other playwrights for a talk back hosted by Piper Anderson. Click here for tickets and click here for an interview with the producers on ABC7.
