Gitana is bringing this play to the St. Louis Public at no cost to encourage healing and understanding between our community and the Police.
Recent events in Ferguson have ruptured the denial that many had about the state of race relations and equal justice under the law in our region. This is an original play that will explore the complexity of the relationship between the African American community and Police who are charged with keeping us safe and secure. The play will be based on a compilation of interviews with policemen and members of the African American community. Community representatives from Ferguson will join professional actors on stage.
