UPCOMING DISCUSSIONS

 

"This program is inspiring, both to students and to the rest of us. It's a great way to help them see how important and relevant (and vibrant) arts in their community are to the rest of their lives and to their own experiences."

the bull jean stories

October 20 - November 13, 2022

@ Pillsbury House Theatre

 

Using traditional storytelling and nontraditional verse to chronicle the course of love returning in the lifetimes of one woman-loving-woman named bull-dog-jean, the bull jean stories gives cultural documentation and social commentary on African-American herstory and survival. Set in the rural South of the 1920s, bull jean stories herald the spirit of African-American people. After the groundbreaking production of Sharon Bridgforth’s dat Black Mermaid Man Lady/The Show in 2018, Pillsbury House Theatre is elated to welcome back home the unmistakable brilliant artistry of this American Theatre treasure.

NOTE: Discussions for THE BULL JEAN STORIES will take place in mid-late October.
