A Few Short Plays to Save The World and What You Did

now - January 24, 2021 
Virginia Wirtz Center for the Performing Arts
30 Arts Circle Drive, Evanston , IL 60208
(847) 491-7282

Virtual on Demand: These two short plays tackle some of the thorniest and most urgent issues of equity facing our country today through the lens that we know best:  the work of the theater artist. Wryly hilarious and startlingly direct, these contemporary pieces fling us into high stakes situations at full speed; alongside the puzzled characters, we are left to try to make sense of the blunt racial disparities we are complicit in.  What is the responsibility of the artist in serving the greater good?  Is it possible to make a real difference by making plays?  Jovial aliens, fierce women, playwrights just trying to get heard:  everyone’s jumping into the fray! Estimated run-time of this production is 45 minutes.
