American Theatre Magazine on FACING OUR TRUTHS

Nice article in this month’s American Theatre magazine on the project created by Keith Josef Adkins of New Black Fest — Facing Our Truths: Short Plays on Trayvon, Race, and Privilege.

Theatre is one of the few public forums in which people can engage and have conversation and feel comfortable and feel protected,” Adkins says. A playwright himself, he knew he didn’t want to put the burden of responding to the case on the shoulders of just one writer. “I just felt, ‘Let me find writers whom I know are from diverse backgrounds and diverse perspectives,’” he recalls thinking. “That way the conversation can be wide.”

First reading is Dec. 5, CUNY’s Segal Center.
