The play is in the style of documentary theater and discusses the emotional landscape of a vulnerable population in the wake of the Rodney King verdict in 1992.

The theater company says, “This timely, powerful documentary performance play raises questions about race, power, truth and justice. It reveals how myths, misinformation and misunderstanding can lead not only to prejudice and stereotyping but also violence.”

Admission is $25 and the show will be performed at 7 p.m. Saturdays and 3 p.m. Sundays. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, all visitors to the Fleetwood-Jourdain Theatre must provide proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken in the previous 72 hours.

Advance tickets are required and can be purchased online. The theater’s Premium Gold Card Members can reserve seats by emailing fjtheatre@cityofevanston.org. Members should include their full name, the date they wish to attend, a contact phone number and the number located on the back of their card. They will receive a confirmation.
