Steppenwolf for Young Adults presents:
WE ARE PROUD TO PRESENT
A Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South West Africa, From the German Sudwestafrika, Between the Years 1884 and 1915
By Jackie Sibblies Drury
The play follows a group of actors gathering together to give a presentation about a long-forgotten?or possibly never remembered?genocide. In doing so, they realize that summaries based on history books aren?t nearly enough to capture the complexity of human extermination?or human interaction. We Are Proud to Present a Presentation? tells the story of what happens when, in an effort to dig deeper, the nobly intentioned ensemble crashes into their own simmering fears and unconscious prejudices, coming face to face with the potential for brutality in all of us.
The play is recommended for ages 14 and up.
Workshop: 5pm - 6:00pm
Performance at 6:30pm
The Workshop and performance are both free and open to the public. No registration required.Add to Calendar 2019-03-19 18:30:00 2019-03-19 21:30:00 Steppenwolf's We are Proud to Present at Tuley Tuley (Murray) Park Chicago Park District email@example.com America/Chicago public
