Towards an Anti-Racist Tomorrow
Playwright, Idris Goodwin, under the title “Free Play: Open Source Scripts Toward an
Antiracist Tomorrow.” Has made 5 short plays available to produce for free. The plays,
are designed for children ranging in age from 6 to 14-plus, and include Water Gun
Song, about a parent having to explain to a child why a water gun isn’t simply a toy;
Nothing Rhymes With Juneteenth, in which a child and parent compose a rap for a
school presentation; Act Free, in which three kids wrestle with the definition of freedom;
#Matter, a two-hander in which high schoolers debate matters of life and race; and
Black Flag, in which two new college dorm-mates are getting along swimmingly until
one decides to decorate their room with a little piece of “Southern pride.”
Karen Oster and The MCC Theatre department is collaborating with Christa Brown and
The Free Soil Arts Collective in bringing these plays to Lowell via a zoom webinar
performance on November 15th at 3pm. Joined by a creative team of directors and
actors of color, Idris Goodwin will hold a community conversation surrounding the
issues represented in these plays.
