52 Letters at Regina's Door
52 Letters is a one-woman poetic stage play, written, performed and directed by Oakland, Ca Native Regina Y. Evans. Through the use of poetry and Negro Spirituals, 52 Letters brings awareness to the tragedy of sex trafficking and its effects upon American youth and women. 52 Letters was honored to win a 2013 Best Of The San Francisco Fringe Festival Award and is performed by Evans throughout the Bay Area.
In his review of 52 Letters, SF Chronicle Theater Critic, Robert Hurwitt, wrote, "Evans, who opens her solo on a slave auction block - large male handprints all over her arms - calls herself an Abolitionist. The slavery she's combatting with impressive performance skills, concentrated poetry and moral fervor is the invidious plague of child rape, here and elsewhere. A mesmerizing blend of scathing personal stories, incantatory phrases, artful oratory and movement, this is theater as essential wake-up call."
The performance will be followed by a community panel and conversation on the issues of human trafficking in the Bay Area.
This performance launches the Eliza's Pearl Series at Regina's Door. Eliza's Pearl seeks to provide a safe artistic performance space for Black and Brown Female Creatives.
