The Every 28 Hours Plays

New One-Minute Plays Inspired by the Black Lives Matter Movement at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland—Saturday 24 October 2015


The One-Minute Play Festival and Oregon Shakespeare Festival presented The Every 28 Hours Plays—new one-minute plays inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement—livestreamed on the global, commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Saturday 24 October at 6 p.m. PDT (Los Angeles) / 8 p.m. CDT (St. Louis) / 9 p.m. EDT (New York) from the Kranzberg Arts Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

Every twenty-eight 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. 

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.
