Page 73 Productions: “La Race”
Event by Page 73.
This conversation will be hosted by Artistic Director Michael Walkup as the culmination of an eleven-day virtual residency for playwright Bleu Beckford Burrell (2020 Interstate 73). During the residency, Bleu will collaborate with director, Tamilla Woodard, and actors on her new play La Race. The cast will read approximately 10 minutes of the play during this free, hour-long event that will also feature audience questions.
About La Race:
While Maxine is grappling with personal and professional setbacks, her best friend is scheming to have her run for local office in Far Rockaway. As Maxine and her unconventional election committee navigate race, identity, and gentrification along the trail, a campaign that began as a distraction turns into a mission of vital importance to Maxine and her community.
Page 73 is delighted to offer this virtual event for free to our entire community. However, all writers and collaborators are being paid. If you are able, please consider donating to help Page 73 provide this opportunity for our playwrights. We thank you in advance for contributions of any size!
