Don't Call It a Riot!
12th Avenue Arts Theater
Seattle, WA
Share this event:


It's 1968 and Reed, a member of Seattle's Black Panther Party, must juggle the demands of a new marriage and a baby on the way, yet still find time to fight for liberation and dream of creating a better world. When her best friend Marti moves in, there is yet one more thing on her plate. Reed is unaware of the forces that will eventually destroy the Party, as well as the ones that threaten her happy home. It will take 31 years before she discovers the betrayal that was at the root of a dream deferred.

In Don't Call it a Riot!, local playwright - and 2019 Emerald Prize finalist - Amontaine Aurore explores the history of Seattle activism from the height of the city's 1960s Black Panther Party to the 1999 WTO protests while uncovering the toll that a commitment to social justice can take on the day-to-day lives of activists.
