“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.
Please be advised this play contains mature subject matter.
This production was 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
