Welcome to PlayMakers’ 2022/2023 season opener, Pearl Cleage’s seminal work, “Blues for an Alabama Sky.” Pearl’s writing stirs the soul, and her beautiful exploration of a group of young dreamers in the midst of the Harlem Renaissance resonates with a timelessness that is found only in the best of theatre.
The recent increase in violence and hate against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders is beyond comprehension. But we can visualize a path forward that we artists have a vital role in.
PlayMakers Repertory Company stands in unequivocal solidarity with members of our Black Community. We see you. We hear you. We grieve with you.
As we all learn what is safe and possible moving forward, PlayMakers will be making real-time adjustments to our programming in close consultation with the University.
A message from Producing Artistic Director Vivienne Benesch about these uncertain times, at PlayMakers and beyond.
“A rising tide lifts all boats.” An open invitation to our campus, our communities, and our creatives to get involved to help lift and guide the rising of this artistic tide in the Triangle.
PlayMakers Repertory Company is committed to cultivating a diverse and inclusive environment for the community that it serves, including students, staff, faculty, and guest artists.
