Pia Wilson's Back to the Real
Friday, June 23 at 7pm
NJPAC, One Center Street, Newark NJ
Chase Room
Cutting-edge play development meets insightful community dialogue at the third season of NJPAC Stage Exchange, a collaboration of three professional New Jersey theatres, the New Jersey Theatre Alliance, and a talented trio of Garden State playwrights. Following readings and Q&As at NJPAC in Spring 2017, each partner producing theatre will stage a world premiere in the 2017-18 season.

In this new play commissioned by Crossroads Theatre Company, Pia Wilson explores race, colorism within the African-American community, sexism, and anti-LGBTQ sentiment. Back to the Real is a play about a brother and sister who must navigate the potholes along the way to becoming actual adults. How are the brother and sister going to (or not going to) stand up for each other?
