In response to the growing momentum behind the #MeToo Movement, this BSU Theatre season has been dedicated to the creation of a new, devised performance entitled #MeToo. Through interviews, research and personal narrative, BSU student artists of #MeToo have generated a multidisciplinary workshop performance that shares the intimate challenges and powerful survival of those who have experienced gender-based harassment and abuse.

Please join BSU Theatre as we build a community that gives voice to those who have remained silent. Due to the intimate and immersive nature of this production, audience sizes are limited to 14 participants only.

Tickets: $10 General, $5 Students, Faculty and Staff with ID.

Rachel: The Play at Bowie State University, Oct 26

Rachel: The Play at Bowie State University, Oct 26

Rachel: The Play
By Angelina Weld Grimke
Directed by Michelle Washington

October 26, 2017 7:30pm

Fine and Performing Arts Center, Black Box Theatre, Bowie State University.

This play from 1917 transcends contemporary socio-political issues through the lead female character. Rachel is a young black woman living with her mother and brother. Upon hearing of the gruesome deaths of both her father and her brother, she decides to never have children of her own and to never marry. While popular and award winning when first written, adding to Grimke’s dramatic experience here in addition to her poetry and novels, Rachel has been produced only twice since its creation.

This performance reading is directed by Adjunct Professor Michelle Washington and supported by BSU’s Alpha Psi Omega Theatre Honor Society.
