*Book with Purpose* Our Time: A Conversation in Black and White

Presented by Artzenstuff Creative, The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, and Triad Cultural Arts

About this event

A multi-media, theatrical event, the three-character one-act play, a workshop production, is set in Winston-Salem after a Black Lives Matter rally and a Sons of the Confederacy protest of the removal of a Confederate monument.

Two men, one Black and one white, are reluctantly drawn into conversation by an Old Hippie as they all wait for their rides to take them home. Humor and emotion reveal surprising commonalities between these apparent political opposites.

There will be a talk-back with the cast, crew, and audience after each performance. Please stay for this. We really want your feedback.

Solomon Caldwell, a 2020 graduate of UNC School of the Arts School of Music, is the music director.

Lynn Felder, former arts reporter at the Winston-Salem Journal, is the playwright.

Tickets are free with online registration required. Each performance is capped at 50 people and social distancing will be observed. Groups will be able to sit together. Donations will be accepted.

“Our Time” is supported, in part, by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation through the Artist Thrive initiative.
