Our 23/24 season artist-in-residence, New York’s esteemed Negro Ensemble Company (NEC), performs the world premiere of two commissioned one-act plays: Breathe by Cynthia Grace Robinson and The Perilous Fight by Levy Lee Simon. As part of our season-long focus, the plays will center on the tragedy and trauma of the gun violence epidemic and its disproportionate impact on communities of color. With NEC, “arguably the most successful Black theatre group in the world,” (American Theatre) we seek to elevate these vital conversations and amplify Black voices, stories and perspectives.
Please note, this performance uses prop guns and includes mature content and strong language.
