Parity Plays continues with a reading of a new play by Chisa Hutchinson, Mama’s Gonna Buy You,  on Sunday, June 14th at Cap21 Studios (18W18th Street).  Chisa’s play takes on themes of white appropriation, the power of wealth, and powerlessness of poverty.  This funny and moving play raises questions of entitlement and who “deserves” to be a parent.  The reading will be directed by Jade King Caroll and will feature a talented cast of over 50% Women (per our Parity Plays mission).  Please join us for this FREE programming.
