The Cloverdale Performing Arts Center’s New Work Festival of Injustice

Sun, September 20, 2020, 2:00 pm

The Cloverdale Performing Arts Center has put together a festival of new works by local artists revolving around the theme of injustice, which will be shared via Facebook Live and YouTube. There are seven plays, which will be shared individually for two weekends in September. Each piece is between 10-20 minutes in length, and has been adapted from play format to film to order to be more accessible (and safe) during the pandemic. Each show will have a talkback with the cast, playwright and director, on FB live following the screening.

These 10-20 minute One-Act shows will be aired individually live on CPAC’s Facebook page September 10, 11, 12, 18, and 19th at 7pm, and September 13th and 20th at 2pm.
