The Annointed

The African American experience is not represented solely by one voice or one style. THE FIRE THIS TIME FESTIVAL is a platform for talented early-career playwrights of African-American descent to explore new voices, styles and challenging new directions for 21st century performing arts, and move beyond common ideas of what is possible in black theater. THE FIRE THIS TIME FESTIVAL 2011 will feature five staged readings, six ten-minute plays, and a panel discussion on Diversity in Contemporary Theatre.
Four African American ministers are forced to wrestle with their own truth. The truth that they know could set them free or destroy their ministries. A talkback with writer Germono Toussaint will follow the reading.
