Pegasus & Black Ensemble Theatre Invite You To A Free Reading of 10 Ten-Minute Plays
On Tuesday, July 28th, The Black Lives, Black Words International Project will present a new staged reading series of ten-minute plays from ten black Chicago playwrights. Originated by Reginald Edmund and presented as part of The Greenhouse Theater's Trellis Series, the play series is part of an international shared project to be hosted in Minneapolis, Cleveland, DC/Baltimore, and London, England that explores urban black diaspora experiences. These cities have had countless reports in the media, all negative, from police brutality to black on black violence; but what are the views and other issues most prevalent to those who understand, live and work in the community?
Chicago based Contributing Producers: Pegasus Theatre, MPAACT, and Black Ensemble Theatre's Black Playwrights Initiative, alongside community partners ETA Creative Arts Foundation and Congo Square.
Featuring works from playwrights: Shepsu Aakhu, David Barr III, Nambi E Kelley, Reginald Edmund, Tsehaye Hebért, Kristiana Rae Colón, Loy Webb, Elana Elyce, Celeste Cooper and more.
The reading is free to the public. Advance reservations for the July 28th Chicago reading are requested! Click here to make your reservation.
