A Youth Onstage! laboratory production, America (A Conversation) uses Langston Hughes' poem "Let America Be America Again" and Alan Ginsberg's "America" as springboards. The cast, under the direction of Dan Friedman and Brian Mullin and featuring Youth Onstage! Community Performance School graduates, mixes movement, text and music to create a conversation with their country, their history, their audience, and themselves, asking: "Who speaks for America?" "What does America have to say?" and "Who/What is America anyway?"
Appropriate for ages: 12+
