48 HOURS IN HARLEM
In September of 2010, 9 producers came together in Harlem. Over good food and conversation, we unanimously agreed that we were in the midst of a new Black Arts Movement and even more exciting, a new Harlem Renaissance!

We decided to collaborate our talents and resources to form a collective that would explore the past, present, and future of black culture and our rich history of storytelling, thus serving to contribute to the re...-invigoration of the Harlem community.

"48 hours in Harlem" is our inaugural event, aimed at stimulating emerging African American artists. 6 playwrights are offered 6 classic, provocative plays. They are challenged to re-conceive these classics into a ten-minute format. 6 savvy directors and 18 accomplished actors will bring these raw impressions to life, all in a weekend, to be performed on Sunday evening.

Playwrights: Keith Josef Adkins, Harrison David Rivers, DominiqueMorriseau, Derek Lee McPhatter, Ayanna Maia, and
Mfoniso Udofia

Directors: Niegel Jason Smith, Nicole A. Watson, Christopher Burris, Melissa Maxwell, Russell G. Jones, and Tamilla Woodard

Actors: Bruce Lemon, Laura Johnston, Axel Avin Jr., Chanel Carroll, Heather Simms,Crystal Dickinson, Gillian Glasco, Jamie Lincoln Smith, Jocelyn Bioh, Elain Graham, Samuel T. Gaines, Willie Teacher, Tamela Aldridge, Marcus Naylor, Alano Miller, Gerard Joseph, Ayo Cummings and Charles Browning
