Art Will Endure

Our stages may be closed, but our creativity and love of theatre have not taken a break. We commissioned 10 local playwrights to write monologues on the theme of hope. Each of these monologues was performed by a local actor and shared on our Facebook and Instagram accounts, as well as on this page. Scroll down for more detailed artist information and to watch the complete series.
