Care and Crisis Through Theatre

Care and Crisis through Theatre presented with the Whiting Foundation. Join us for a discussion with Will Arbery (Heroes of the Fourth Turning), Amy Herzog (4000 Miles), Lynn Nottage (Ruined, Sweat), and Michael R. Jackson (A Strange Loop) – moderated by Soraya Nadia McDonald, award-winning cultural critic for The Undefeated, ESPN’s premiere platform covering race, sports, and culture — about the ways we take care of each other and ourselves during crisis, how theater can model or create those spaces for care, and the potential for care for one community to carry with it a blindness towards other communities.
