Dallas,TX- The Bishop Arts Theatre Center and local new play incubator The Aviary join together in partnership to present 15 local playwrights and historic American speeches. Dallas artists will join the widely-publicized national #WritersResist movement in collaboration with PEN America with a night of readings at the Bishop Arts Theatre Center on January 15, 2017 at 7 p.m.
In the spirit of the movement, which reflects on what it looks like to live in a free, just, and compassionate society, the evening will also include excerpts of historic American speeches from Howard Zinns collection The People Speak, performed by local members of the DFW theater community.
All of our local writers and actors are excited about this chance to contribute meaningfully to the current political discourse, remarks Lauren Ferebee, co-director of The Aviary. Whats great about this event is that it doesnt have a political agenda - it is an open space for writers and audience to reflect together on the world we live in, and the world we want to live in.
