SEEK & YE SHALL FIND written and performed by Sentell Harper
Friday September 28, 8:00pm & Friday October 12, 8:00pm.
Seek & Ye Shall Find is a one-man show that asks, What does it mean to be different? To be black? To be gay? One performer boldly explores the stories of 25 different black, gay men who are fiercely funny, deeply honest, and constantly surprising. Combining interviewing techniques and storytelling flair, Seek and Ye Shall Find brings forth the comedic and heartbreaking tales of individuals whose complexity cannot be simplified behind stereotype. Directed by Stephanie Stroud.

TOXIC DONUT by Steve Simoncic
Saturday, September 29, 5PM
A new play about a forgotten corner of Detroit where smoke stacks tower over industrial runoff, and power lines dot a landscape of burned out homes and broken families, there is a pimp-turned-preacher looking for redemption, a stripper-turned-nurse looking for justice and Lorelie…who just wants a baby. Directed by Anna C. Bahow.
The documentary THE INTERRUPTERS will also be featured.
