African Continuum Theatre presents A Blaze of Horns: African American Voices in Brief
This Saturday, September 21st at 7:30pm, please join African Continuum Theatre Company for A Blaze of Horns: African American Voices in Brief, an evening of 10-minute play readings by six of your favorite local playwrights.
Hosted by Patrick Washington of the Poem-Cees, playwrights include Michael J. Bobbitt, Paige Hernandez-Funn, Caleen Jennings, Tom Minter, Jennifer L. Nelson, and Malcolm Pelles.
"A Blaze of Horns" is a phrase from a Sonya Sanchez poem entitled "Sequences." This phrase represents many distinct voices that come together to create a rich, harmonious sound," explained Artistic Director Thembi Duncan. "The Blaze of Horns reading series allows us to experience the myriad perspectives and interests of African-American playwrights, but in the short and challenging form of the 10-minute play. I felt it would be fitting for this event to occur on the evening of the H Street Festival, in order to extend the audience's experience from inside the theatre to outside, surrounded by the vibrancy of H Street, the place where African Continuum Theatre Company makes its home."
