Playwright, actress and educator Amanda Parris shares her third-draft reading of Other Side of the Game. The play explores the idea of being ride-or-die as a phenomenon that has transcended time, where loyalty is not only devoted to intimate partners but also to families, friends, communities and even to political movements; recognizing that though the recipient may change, the patterns of self-effacement are consistently applied. This new draft will showcase a gifted, all-female cast.
Opening for the play will be a screening of the trailer From Slaveships to Relationships by Chevy X, followed by an audience discussion.
