THE BROWN PAPER BAG SERIES

a community outreach series from triangle productions!

 
 

Series Description

With The Brown Paper Bag Series, triangle will expand its outreach and service to the community by producing a year-long play reading project showcasing a unique series of early 20th century plays which relevantly connect to contemporary racial discord. triangle will present readings of four “anti-lynching” plays (most written by African American women) which have deep historical significance. We’re honored to showcase an underrepresented group of writers, and introduce their stories to a new generation. Using the tools of the theatre, adding video, music and audio from the stage, triangle can enrich the experience and elicit a dialogue from the attendees, as well as carry the readings and ancillary workshops into public schools and community groups.
