UPCOMING DISCUSSIONS

 

SKELETON CREW

Yellow Tree Theatre (Produced by New Dawn Theatre)

January 31 - March 1, 2020

Written by Dominique Morisseau

At the start of the Great Recession, one of the last auto stamping plants in hard-hit Detroit is on shaky ground and four workers are forced to choose how to move on if the plant goes under. Powerful and poetic, Skeleton Crew is an emotionally bracing and relevant story of working class survival amidst the eroding American dream.

 

INTERSTATE

Mixed Blood Theatre

March 6 - March 29, 2020

Written by Melissa Li and Kit Yan

Interstate is an Asian-American pop-rock poetry musical that follows a transgender spoken word performer who becomes internet-famous along with his best friend, a lesbian singer-songwriter. Fueled by the allure of fame and a desire to connect with their community, the band embarks on a road trip across America for their first national tour. 

 

TWELVE ANGRY MEN

Theater Latté Da

May 27 - June 28, 2020

Written by Reginald Rose

In form, Twelve Angry Men is a courtroom drama; in purpose, it's a crash course in those passages of the Constitution that promise defendants a fair trial and the presumption of innocence. In a small New York City jury room, on "the hottest day of the year," twelve men debate the fate of a young defendant charged with murdering his father. 

"[The actors and teaching artists] were so gifted in helping to both bring a meaningful artistic experience into our space and facilitating a thoughtful conversation."
