WOKE: A Dream Play by Amelia Parenteau


Hosted by No Dream Deferred and Arts New Orleans

SALON at Canal Place, 333 Canal St, New Orleans, LA 70130

Saturday April 6th, 6PM-9PM

This staged reading is being produced by No Dream Deferred and directed by Kristen Gremillion.

Woke tells the story of an interracial relationship set entirely in a bed in the year 2016, with interjections from an omniscient narrator and a racist grandma. Working within the realm of dreams, this play is both deeply intimate and broadly applicable to contemporary American structural racism.
