America Too is a Trinity Rep initiative that seeks to reflect on the times in which we live and catalyze community conversation. The genesis of the project was Trinity Rep’s participation in The Every 28 Hours Plays in 2015, a theatrical response to the events in Ferguson, Missouri. In addition to the community’s relationship to policing and racism, America Too events have also looked at the impact of the repeal of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) and Providence’s housing crisis. The culminating event of America Too each year is a staged reading of short or full-length plays that illuminate the topic, followed by a robust audience discussion. This event is free and open to the public.
