"An intriguing mix of theater, film and activism." – Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times
Ten writers were commissioned, by Baltimore’s Center Stage Theatre, to create plays set around the kitchen table, inspired by recent events in communities like Sanford, FL; Cleveland, OH; Ferguson, MO; Staten Island, NY; Baltimore, MD; and Charleston, SC. Six of the plays were filmed as pieces of street theater, guerrilla-style, at pivotal locations across the country bringing into searing focus topics that face Chicago today. Playwrights include Chicago’s Lydia R. Diamond as well as Larissa FastHorse, Neil LaBute, Kenneth Lin, Elyzabeth Gregory Wilder, and Kwame Kwei-Armah and Hana Sharif.
FEBRUARY 20: Chicago Director/Filmmaker Derrick Sanders will host this event with a panel on the Chicago’s Hope for Reform after the screening. Joining the panel will be Baltimore Center Stage Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah.
