I want to bring your attention to an excellent play, *We Are Proud to
Present *… by African American director Summer Williams and African
American playwright Jackie Sibblies
probably one of the best I have seen so far dealing with colonialism,
slavery and white supremacy.

It's a cutting edge play, i.e not a typical sit and relax lights out type
of production. I really encourage you to see it if you can, *it closes Feb.

Here are some reviews:

Talk back with director:

Most importantly, if you become a member of Company One Theater for $12/
month, your tickets are free. All their productions this year are written
by women of color. I really like their mission and never saw a play I
didn't like there. If you like theatre, this is an excellent deal.

Contact Summer L. Williams swilliams at companyone.org for group discounts and
for how to become a member. I am one!

Here is how you can get tickets in general:

Ticekt fees are high online, so I suggest you go to the box office to buy
your tickets in person.

It's half price on sale today (Wednesday ) here:
(so I would check above link day of).

Most days at 10am ArtsEmerson releases a limited number of $10 tickets for
that night's performance.  This doesn't happen every day, but if you want
to check, use code $10 at 10, if they don't have tickets available that day
the code won't work.

Sometimes you can find discounts here:

And spread the word please.
