Join The Black Creators Collective in partnership with WACO Theater Center as we present five new and dynamic works by five of LA's finest Black writers for our first Playwrights Festival as part of our new INK-cubator Series.
These exciting stories will explore:
Bridging the Gap: Cultural appropriation through the lens of Tik-Tok.
Mine for the Taking: a magical realism piece by Noro Otitigbe, depicting the generational trauma which ignites a teenage girl's quest for family healing.
The Night in Question: The series of events that led to the murder of Trayvon Martin.
The Flight of Emina & Zubaida: Defending one's legacy from an evil entity.
Kingwood Heights: The ever moving tide to grab hold of the American Dream.
Each reading is approximately 90 minutes, and will be followed by an audience talk, in conversation with the writer and an LA culture maker.
