"'Capers" By Anu Yadav (Solo Performance) says
A play about race, class, and the impact of gentrification in low-income neighborhoods.

A stirring blend of theater, documentary and activism, 'Capers is a one-woman show based on the stories of families at DC's Arthur Capper/Carrollsburg public housing projects – nicknamed ‘Capers – who protested the government-funded demolition of their neighborhood. Featured in major news outlets including the Washington Post, WAMU-FM, and the Washington City Paper, as well as the documentary Chocolate City, 'Capers toured nationally to over 5,500 people. It supported the grassroots organizing of public housing residents fighting to return to their community and was included as required course curriculum for the 11th grade at DC’s Bell Multicultural High School, as well as course reading at American University, University of Maryland at College Park and University of Michigan at Ann Arbor. Written and performed by Anu Yadav. Directed and developed by Patrick Crowley.



The night will feature youth poet, Olivia Neal, and a community panel and discussion on gentrification in Phoenix.

Panelist: Viridiana Hernandez, Anabel Maldonado, Shawn Pearson, Channel Powe, Collette Blakeney, Anu Yadav
