“There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.”
A Town Divided, an original production based loosely on William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, is written from interviews and stories of Tallahassee residents and examines the racial divides in our own city.
Raw, intense, and emotional, this 50-minute play invites participants to examine their own biases and prejudices in an effort to raise social awareness, increase tolerance, and bridge the divides through cross-racial dialogue.
This play contains mature subject matter.
This production has been highlighted on WFSU’s Perspectives with Mayor Andrew Gillum’s conversations about race:
And previously featured on Perspectives in June with the Director of the production, Chris Berry.
Director Chris Berry also contributed an editorial column on race in our City to the Tallahassee Democrat
Our previous productions, in partnership with Tallahassee Community College, Leon County Schools, Goodwood Museum & Gardens and most recently, with Black History Month Festival, were received tremendously by students, teachers, and the community at large.
