This groundbreaking transatlantic theater project is focused on the value of privacy. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institut Washington, theaters across the US and Europe have commissioned playwrights to write five-minute plays exploring the central question, “What does privacy mean to you in the digital age?” The results will be presented in different formats by a network of theaters through June 2018, with the intention of creating an artistic and cultural dialogue centered around varying American and European understandings of privacy.

Experience staged readings of all 15 plays over two evenings, accompanied by discussions about the issues raised by the works with participation from some of the playwrights as well as on-campus and local partners from the public policy, cyber-security and intelligence communities.

Join UMD faculty members and three of the participating artists/playwrights in Do Good Dialogue: No Place to Hide: A Conversation about Privacy, or the Lack Thereof on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 . 7 PM

Tickets: Reserved: $30+, General Admission: $25+, Student/Youth: $10+

The Bitter Game at Milkboy Arthouse, Sep 27-28

The Bitter Game at Milkboy Arthouse, Sep 27-28

Keith A. Wallace (USA)
The Bitter Game
September 27-28, 2017. 8 PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Milkboy Arthouse, 7416 Baltimore Ave., College Park 20740

When Jamel’s mother discovers her young son playing with a toy gun, she knows it’s time to explain the rules of the game to him – the rules of surviving as a Black man in America. In this explosive solo performance combining verse, prose and “sh**-talkin’,” Keith A. Wallace draws on his own youth in Philadelphia to examine the effects of racism, the question of excessive force used by police, and the value of Black lives in this country. Co-created and directed by Deborah Stein.

Originally developed for La Jolla Playhouse’s Without Walls Festival, The Bitter Game comes to The Clarice following its successful run at the Under the Radar Festival in New York City. The performance will be accompanied by a panel discussion featuring campus and community activists and law enforcement representatives.

There will be a post-performance roundtable discussion of Baltimore and Beyond.

Tickets: General Admission: Reserved: $30+, General Admission: $25+, Student/Youth: $10
