Br’er Cotton

TAMPA REPERTORY THEATRE & CREATIVE LOAFING PRESENT

CONVERSATION STARTERS

Staged readings of new plays you won’t be able to stop talking about

Br’er Cotton

by Tearrance Arvelle Chisholm

A potent and poetic expression of anger and hope, Tearrance Chisholm’s play takes place in an impoverished neighborhood on the former site of a thriving cotton mill.  Ruffino, a 14-year old young black man, aroused by the killings of young men like himself, incites a riot at school and online.  History, myth, and the present interact in this sizzling exploration of race and place in America.

Monday, January 10th, in the CL Space, 1911 N. 13th Street, Tampa.  Tickets are $10.

Conversation Starters — it’s a new TampaRep tradition.
