Today, in the United States of America, black people are killed by police at a sharply higher rate than other Americans. We have trouble talking about it, let alone addressing it. We have to NOW.
The Every 28 Hours Plays is a collection of 76 one-minute plays, by a diverse range of playwrights, responding to the crisis of state-sanctioned violence against Black people and all people of color in the United States of America. It is produced nationally by Calling-up Productions and Claudia Alick. https://www.every28hoursplays.org/
Locally, our goal is to produce these plays throughout the region in as many formats and venues as possible. Using a grass roots model, we are growing this project from the ground up; hoping to inspire more participation with each public engagement. The project is intended to promote dialogue, so we aspire to facilitate a dialogue after the plays whenever possible.
