90 New One-Minute Plays
inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement
New Play Development and Residency in St Louis
Performances are free and open to the public
Ever since August of 2014, Ferguson has been on the minds of Americans seeking to tackle the tough conversations about race, social justice, and inequality in the United States.
This month, many of the nation’s most respected theatre artists take the experience of the people of Ferguson and St Louis to heart. Organized by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and One Minute Play Festival, these artists will join St Louis actors, writers, and directors to create over sixty original short plays responding to the events in Ferguson, as well as the widely shared statistic that every 28 hours, a Black person is the victim of systemic violence in America.
The plays will premiere in Ferguson on October 24 at 2pm at the Dellwood Recreation Center. An additional performance will take place the same day at 8pm at the Kranzberg Arts Center. Performance are free and open to the public.
