Made in collaboration with residents of Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Hampton & Newport News
AT THE ATTUCKS THEATRE
Created as part of the Virginia Arts Festival’s 25th Anniversary Season
In August 2021 In[HEIR]itance Project artists began working with community members exploring three narratives side-by-side: the story of Exodus, the history of Coastal Virginia, and the reflections of the people who call this place home. Co-created with hundreds of locals, this funny and thought-provoking drama reimagined the 7 cities as an intergenerational family, and explored the hidden (and not so hidden) struggles of the 757.
