3 Plays are being considered:

For Colored Girls who have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow is Enuf

A Chorepoem by Ntozake Shange

Casting 6-10 Women

Capturing the brutal, tender, and dramatic lives of contemporary Black women, For Colored Girls... offers a transformative, riveting evening of provocative dance, music, and poetry.

 

Blood at the Root

by Dominique Morisseau

Casting:  3 Women, 3 Men

A striking new ensemble drama based on the Jena Six; six Black students who were initially charged with attempted murder for a school fight after being provoked with nooses hanging from a tree on campus. This bold new play by Dominique Morisseau examines the miscarriage of justice, racial double standards, and the crises in relations between men and women of all classes and, as a result, the shattering state of Black family life.

 

Disgraced

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Ayad Akhtar

Casting:  3 Men, 2 Women

Amir Kapoor is a successful Pakistani-American lawyer who is rapidly moving up the corporate ladder while distancing himself from his cultural roots. Emily, his wife, is white; she's an artist, and her work is influenced by Islamic imagery. When the couple hosts a dinner party, what starts out as a friendly conversation escalates into something far more damaging.
