Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Kay Theatre

What happens when personal conviction clashes against state law? How do we bridge the ever-growing divide between law enforcement officers and the American communities they are charged with protecting? Acclaimed actors, police officers, local educators and concerned community members come together for dramatic readings and powerful gospel settings that bring to life Sophocles’ eternal Greek tragedy in Antigone in Ferguson – a ground-breaking social justice theatre project that aims to generate much-needed dialogue, to foster compassion and understanding, and to inspire taking positive action.

Rockfish
by Niree Turner

Rockfish is a piece was inspired by rockfish dinners, aunties who aren’t really your auntie, and the strange circumstances under which the playwright’s grandmother’s belongings were replaced with rocks.

Lost Sons
by Sydney Lemelin

This hip-hop theater piece explores the impact of mass incarceration in the black community. The effects of an imprisoned father ripple throughout the entire family and community, and the play highlights the sharp differences in families with and without a father figure around. It also demonstrates differences in how white men and black men are sentenced.
