World Premiere of The EVERY 28 HOURS Plays:
90 New One-Minute Plays inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement

EVERY 28 HOURS, a Black person is the victim of systematic violence in America. In 2014, St Louis became the inciting center for the Black Lives Matter movement.

On October 20, the nation’s most respected theatre artists, assembled by the acclaimed Oregon Shakespeare Festival and The One-Minute Play Festival (#1mpf), will pilgrimage to St Louis to take up residence with some of the city’s top talent to learn our stories and tackle tough questions about race, social justice, and inequality in the United States.

Public performances of the plays will take place October 24 at 2pm at Dellwood Recreation Center in Ferguson, and at 8pm at the Kranzberg Arts Center in Grand Center. Performances are free and open to the public. A reception will follow the final performance in Grand Center.

Participating companies and artists from across the country, representing dozens of groups ranging from Steppenwolf to the American Conservatory Theatre will revive the plays developed in St Louis with St Louis artists at their home theatres across the country in a nation-wide call-to-action in the continued conversation about race.
