Yesterday we introduced you to Rachel Lynett, our Fall 2018 Playwright. Now we share a bit about the chosen play, GOOD BAD PEOPLE, which will serve as the artistic centerpiece for a community conversation around grief and loss, gun violence, racism and police brutality, and the media's place responding to tragedy. The play was developed with Jackalope Theatre and dramaturg Heather Helinsky, and we are so excited to bring it to our SoCal audience!
In GOOD BAD PEOPLE, June returns home in an attempt to make amends with her family after her brother, Amiri, is shot by a police officer. But when her family refuses to make a statement and her personal beliefs are questioned, suddenly June is forced into the spotlight and must decide which is more important: making amends with her family or standing up for her brother's life.
