Mirror Stage Company, in collaboration with The Hansberry Project at ACT Theatre, presents a reading of The Story, by Tracey Scott Wilson. Val Curtis-Newton directs.
A white inner-city school teacher has been murdered. Yvonne, a young African-American journalist marginalized to the Outlook section of The Daily, cracks the story with a sensational scoop. When her credentials come under scrutiny, the plot takes a ripped-from-the-headlines turn, blurring fact and fiction, morality and ambition. A fast-paced tale of media integrity, race relations and newsroom politics.
