Hidden Faces of Courage, with a Staged Reading of A Lot on Our Minds
In 2013, On With Living and Learning (OWLL) premiered a workshop production of "Hidden Faces of Courage," with full houses every night for this workshop production.
Now OWLL in collaboration with Fort Point Theatre Channel presents a remixed and reimagined "Hidden Faces of Courage," preceded by a staged reading of "A Lot On Our Minds," reflections from youth about their experiences with incarceration and police interaction.
Both plays combine monologues, spirituals, and rap to portray the struggles of a group of mothers reentering their communities from prison and the effects on the youth living in the shadow of their incarceration. The scripts were conceived by OWLL founder Mary Driscoll and are a creative collaboration with members of OWLL.
After viewing a workshop performance of "Hidden Faces of Courage," an audience member wrote:"This has to be the most inspiring play I have seen since 'For Colored Girls. . . .' A MUST SEE!"
