Racey Plays Finale: The Short Plays

Posted by MB - November 12, 2011

We are excited to announce the conclusion to our Racey Plays Reading Series happening on December 4th at 7pm at Luca Lounge as we present Racey Plays: The Short Plays. Luca Lounge is located at 222 Avenue B between East 13th and 14th.

Every other month this past year we’ve been working with some incredible playwrights to present a new play around the issue of race. The idea for the Racey Plays Reading Series comes from our interest in and fascination with race and racism and more specifically how race effects the way we see other people and ourselves.

We wanted to share the voices of others artists who are trying to explore the intricacies of race and culture in their work. Ultimately, these are plays about identity, about what it means to be a human being living in a skin, a culture, an ethnicity, or a language that just doesn’t quite fit the majority mold.

For the final reading, we are presenting the following 5 short plays by these prolific playwrights:

Ababuo by Julienne Hairston

Cataracts by Vanessa Shealy Younger

Final Request by Tariq Hamami

Hyena by Callie Kimball

Ready by Mando Alvarado

Join us to celebrate these great new works, have a beer, meet some playwrights you should know, talk shop, and join the Project Y community.  We will also be announcing our theme for our Reading Series in 2012!

See you there!
