In December of 1967……Everything changed
Passage Theatre’s State Street Project will present its first performance of the 2007-2008 season, Urban Central by David White, Dec. 14-16, 2007.
A new play written and directed by David White, Urban Central is inspired by true stories from Trenton High School (THS) graduates. After performing extensive research into events at Trenton High School during the turbulent school year of 1967-1968, Mr. White contacted and interviewed several Trenton High School alumni about their experiences. Urban Central focuses on a longtime urban high school teacher who plans to transfer to a suburban school, but is first forced to come to terms with her own past as a student there, during the race riots of 1967-1968.
Following the Saturday matinee at 3 pm and the Saturday night performance at 7pm, Kidsbridge is presenting a panel of THS graduates or other Trentonians who lived through these turbulent times. There are still openings on the panel. If you would like to share your experience and would like to enjoy the play for FREE for you and one guest, pls respond to this email or contact Lynne Azarchi (see below). Thanks in advance.
