If We Don't Get It, Shut It Down: A Play about the Baltimore Uprising

If We Don't Get It, Shut It Down: A Play about the Baltimore Uprising

Harlem Repertory Theater, 240 E 123rd St, New York, NY
General Public 

Lang Senior Morgan Stevenson premieres her senior thesis play, which details the events of the Baltimore Uprising that occurred last spring. It is an interview-based theater production performed by current New School students and alums, who perform the stories of Baltimore's youth of color, the most pivotal force in the fight against police brutality and institutional racism. The structure of the play allows audiences to focus narrowly on the stories of the youth and question the integrity of mainstream media who were responsible for the defamation of protesters during this time. 

The show is 80 minutes long. Following the performance, the audience will be able to engage directly with the Baltimore youth activists who inspired this play through an interactive panel discussion. 

The event is free, but suggested donations are accepted to support Baltimore grassroots organizations. You can make a reservation through the red reserve button at the top right of this page.
