In 2013, The New Black Fest in New York City commissioned six very diverse playwrights to write 10-minute plays on the topic of Trayvon Martin, race and/or privilege. This commission resulted in a collection of one-acts titled Facing our Truth which continue to be presented around the country, often around February 5th, Trayvon Martin’s birthday. Facing Our Truth's purpose is to spark serious discussion in our collective communities around these urgent issues.
Multicultural BRIDGE, WAM Theatre, Berkshire Theatre Group and Yvette “Jamuna” Sirker are joining together to present a reading of Facing Our Truth on Saturday, February 6 at 7:30PM at The Colonial Theatre in Pittsfield, MA with a moderated panel and community discussion to follow.
Here to tell us more are Kristen van Ginhoven, Artistic Director of WAM Theatre, and Gwendolyn Hampton-VanSant, CEO and Founding Director of Multicultural BRIDGE.
