The third of a 5 part series. Nothing Rhymes with Juneteenth finds a child and a parent trying to complete a rap for a school presentation.
Mad Cow Theatre, in partnership with Black Theatre Girl Magic, presents digital readings of five short plays by award-winning playwright, poet and changemaker, Idris Goodwin, to spark conversation about race in America for multi-generational audiences.
With the support of Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA/USA), Goodwin has offered these plays to serve as a catalyst for action. Each of these short works, written to be read across the multi-generational spectrum, offer different insights about disconnects in racial conversation and the Black experience in America. Scripts and more can be found here: http://www.tyausa.org/freeplay/
Events will be livestreamed on Mad Cow Theatre and Black Theatre Girl Magic’s respective Facebook pages. These readings will be offered free of charge to remove the barriers of conversations about race in America, but registration is strongly encouraged to guarantee access to the event and take part fully in the Q&A dialogue following.
