Join us on Monday April 11th at 6:00pm at The Dorothy Strelsin Theater for a reading of The Boat.

Join us on Monday, April 18th at 6:30pm for a reading of Come My Beloved, a new play about race, intimacy and Detroit, Michigan. The play chronicles one Friday night in the lives of three Black and Jewish couples, all based on one real family. Come My Beloved explores the downfall and resurgence of one of America’s most important cities and the vastly different trajectories of two communities within it.

We’re excited to once again produce a play for the IBEW Women’s Conference – this year it’s about Ella Mae Wiggins and is written by Cori Thomas.
We depend on the generous contributions of others to help us keep this work going, to send artists out into the communities, to hire teachers for our adult education programs, and to keep the lights on. Every contribution helps.
