The Hue Festival: Rarified Air – Brown Soul Productions @ Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute (Seattle – Central District)

By Nina Foxx
Directed by Sandra Holloway

It’s the beginning of the Pandemic and an affluent Black family in Bellevue, WA shelters in place with the rest of us. When the murder of George Floyd lights the fire of activism in their teenage daughter, parents Claire and Dante wrestle with what it means to keep their child “safe” when safety, once taken for granted, becomes an illusion and is quickly fleeting on multiple fronts.

Part of The Hue Festival: A multi-night event of new play readings by BIPOC women writers, created with the mission to be a platform that holds space for new plays by women playwrights of color and provides these new works with an opportunity to live and breathe before a community of theater lovers while also giving playwrights the opportunity to hear their work out loud for future development. Presented May 22-25 by Brown Soul Productions, The Hansberry Project, and Seattle Public Theater, in partnership with Langston.

Tickets are pay-what-you-choose for all, available here.
