DETAILS: The Straz Center’s BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and People-of-Color) Play Reading Series is an integral part of our efforts to be more inclusive and to diversify our artistic offerings. This, in turn, is part of our overall commitment to diversity and inclusivity in all areas of The Straz.
For the second year, this four-part series offers the dramatic experience of hearing excerpts from plays written by talented local and national writers. A question-and-answer period follows, during which writers can provide insight into their creative processes.
The first playwright featured, award-winning playwright Gretchen Suárez-Peña, will present some of her original work and share insight into her journey as a writer. Her play reading will be performed on Sunday, Feb. 5 at 2:30 p.m. in the TECO Theater.
Additional play readings will be held on Sundays, March 5, April 23 and May 28. All play readings will be FREE and held at 2:30 p.m. in the TECO Theater. Reservations are required by calling 813.229.STAR (7827) or visiting the website at www.strazcenter.org/Events/Straz/Shows/Voices-of-the-Community/BIPOC-Playreading-Series and clicking on the show date.
