BLACK QUEER SELFHOOD ON AMERICAN STAGES

SAT FEB 29, 2020 at 5:30 PM

The Newman Mills Theater at the
THE ROBERT W. WILSON MCC THEATER SPACE
511 W 52 ST

Join us for a discussion exploring how the queer self and queer womanhood are articulated and the crafting of identity through storytelling.

MCC’s Let’s Talk series presents a Panel Discussion titled: Black Queer Selfhood on American Stages featuring playwrights C.A. Johnson, Kirya Traber, Donja R. Love and Michael R. Jackson and moderated by Ianne Fields Stewart. The conversation will explore the shifts in the American Theater landscape in producing plays written by queer playwrights. We will take a deeper look into plays that explore the black experience and black queer womanhood on stage and dive into how the plays tell stories through conflict, embracing dreaming inside theatrical work, and the presence of elders or the lack thereof.
