Staging social justice in STL

"Staging Social Justice in STL" from The St. Louis American

Every 28 Hours producer Jacqueline Thompson with St. Louis actors Tiffany Knighten, Kenyatta Tatum and Reginald Pierre perform in a social justice theatre workshop in spring of 2015.

"The Black Rep, Kathryn Bentley, That Uppity Theatre Company, The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, Shakespeare Festival St. Louis, Salt House Collective, Mustard Seed Theatre and St. Lou Fringe will participate in the project. 

“Ferguson is the heartbeat of the movement,” Thompson said. “This project is a brilliant creative conduit to share its pulse with the world.” 

In a week-long residency, participants will tour important historical St. Louis sites and collaborate with local playwrights, directors and actors in collaborative writing sessions and readings of the plays in both St. Louis city and North County near the site of the shooting of Michael Brown Jr. The event will culminate with public performances on October 24 at the Dellwood Community Center and the Kranzberg Arts Center."
