Hands Up - December 2, 2017 at 7:30 PM and December 3, 2017 at 2:00 PM at Withycombe Hall Main Stage at OSU in Corvallis
We were excited to bring a production of The August Wilson Red Door Project's Hands Up from Portland to Corvallis! These incredibly powerful performances featured testaments by seven black playwrights exploring their feelings about "the well-being of black people in a culture of institutional profiling" in the wake of recent police shootings. Each performance featured a talk-back session after the show.
