NewYorkRep (Gayle Waxenberg, Co-Founder, Executive Director), in association with Rashad V. Chambers and Five Ohm Productions, presents CivilWrights, a ten-minute play series. A response to the national crisis on systemic racism, four playwrights of color have written 10-minute mini plays on racism. This short play festival, a first in a series, will feature a range of subjects, perspectives and content within BIPOC realities, which explore the current and ongoing political and social climate around all forms of racism. Each series will be followed by a Town Hall style talk-back to foster conversation about equality and also create a more inclusive American Theatre.
