Bishop Arts Theatre Center presents The 1619 Project: One-Act Festival
February 9 @ 12:00 am - February 26 @ 12:00 am$18
In late August 1619, a ship arrived in the British colony of Virginia with a cargo of 20-30 enslaved people from Africa. Their arrival led to the barbaric and unprecedented system of American chattel slavery that would last for the next 250 years. This is sometimes referred to as the country’s original sin, but it is more than that. It is the source of so much that still defines the United States.
Bishop Arts Theatre Center has commissioned nine local and nationally celebrated playwrights to pen a one-act play, no longer than 20 minutes, based on Pulitzer Prize-winning and New York Times bestselling author Nikole Hannah-Jones’ The 1619 Project. Each writer was asked to read the book and pen a script from a chapter that inspired them. This one-act festival will weave together stories that explore the legacy of slavery in present-day America.
Participating playwrights include Anyika McMillan-Herod, Erin Malone Turner, Terrance Brooks Boykin, Janelle Gray, Aaron Zilbermann, Cain Rodriguez, Zoe Kerr, Jacqueline Salit, and Jared Glenn.
