This collection of 75 one-minute plays was inspired by the widely shared—yet hotly contested—statistic that every 28 hours a black person is killed by a vigilante, security guard, or police officer in the United States. Originally created and produced by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and The One-Minute Play Festival in response to events in Ferguson, MO following Michael Brown’s death, the plays were curated from playwrights nationwide. This will be a 20-minute excerpt from the original play with a moderated discussion following. We hope to have open and honest dialogue regarding the themes of the play and current events.
5:30 PM to 7:30 PM
