The Every 28 Hours Plays are coming to Penn State on Wednesday, February 1, 2017 at The Pavilion Theatre at 5:30 pm. Free - no ticket required!

This collection of 75 one-minute plays was inspired by the widely shared--yet hotly contested--statistic that every 28 hours a black person is killed by a vigilante, security guard, or police officer in the United States. Originally created and produced by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival and The One-Minute Play Festival in response to events in Ferguson, MO following Michael Brown's death, the plays were curated from playwrights nationwide. This will be a 20-minute excerpt from the original play with a moderated discussion following. We hope to have open and honest dialogue regarding the themes of the play and current events.

Moderated by Curt Marshall, coordinator of multicultural programs, College of Arts and Architecture.

In partnership with the College of Agricultural Sciences Office of Multicultural Affairs, MANRRS, the College of Arts and Architecture, and the School of Theatre.
