Weekend Adventures - part 1
We went to The Fire This Time - 10 minute play festival.
It's 7 distinctly different plays that cover a variety of situations/topics, yet they fit together. Comedy, drama, suspense - it's all here.
2 more shows: Thu 1/29 @ 7pm, Fri 1/30 @ 7
Featured in The Boston Globe, NYtimes, and American Theatre Magazine, The Fire This Time Festival is leading the push towards new possibilities in Black Theater. Offering early-career playwrights of African and African American descent the opportunity to write material that reflects diverse perspectives as 21st century theater artists, the works range from comedy, to sic-fi, to drama and more.
