The In[HEIR]itance Project is a national arts organization of artists, scholars, and activists, that helps unconnected neighbors navigate challenging civic conversations. Our work brings people together to listen, learn, and collaborate to create a piece of theatre. The script starts with conversations and individual stories and ends as a unified collective narrative in the shape of a public performance. Every project is unique. Every project starts with you.
Inspired by conversations with locals and the inherited Exodus narrative, this funny and thought-provoking drama reimagines 7 cities in Hampton Roads as an intergenerational family exploring the hidden (and not so hidden) struggles of the area.
Performances May 5-7, 2022 at the Historic Attucks Theatre
as part of the Virginia Arts Festival 25th Anniversary Season
