Made in collaboration with residents of Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Hampton & Newport News
Using the unique history of Coastal Virginia, and ‘Exodus’ as our inherited text, we are activating a dialogue on racial dynamics, redlining, and displacement to create a play for the Virginia Arts Festival in May 2022 at the historic Attucks Theater.
Produced by Martha Goode, Goode Productions
With support from Virginia Humanities and the Hampton Roads Community Foundation
