Facing Our Truth: Ten Minute Plays on Trayvon, Race and Privilege

Facing Our Truth artwork

March 30–April  2, 2017


Following the 2012 death of Trayvon Martin, and the trial and eventual acquittal of George Zimmerman, New York-based theatre company The New Black Fest responded by hiring a diverse group of accomplished playwrights to write about themes of race and privilege in America. What resulted are six gorgeous 10-minute plays, some hilarious, some sorrowful.

There will be facilitated dialogue following each performance.
