At Another Intersection: More Plays of the Black and Jewish Experience
Black and Jewish stories have intertwined throughout the history of our country, spurring some of our nation’s top playwrights to write plays that explore the intersection of these lives. After their popular “At the Intersection” class, join Artistic Director Adam Immerwahr and acclaimed DC actress Felicia Curry (Helen Hayes Award winner, nine-time Helen Hayes nominee, and two-time host of the Helen Hayes Awards) as they dive back into a new set of engaging performance texts. We’ll delve deeply into these texts—spurring powerful and enlightening conversations. In our book club-style sessions, we will analyze the plays and engage in bold and candid discussions about the important issues that they raise around race, ethnicity, and identity in our country. Former participants have praised Curry and Immerwahr’s teaching as “thought-provoking,” “insightful,” “educational,” and “wonderful!”
Please note: Script purchases will be required. If you have taken At the Intersection before, this class will use different scripts and readings.
