This past week, I was provided the opportunity to watch the American Players Theatre’s performance of Nathan Alan Davis’ play “Nat Turner in Jerusalem” directed by Gavin Lawrence. Mediated through Zoom with strategic use of sound effects and props, this play portrays the conversations between the leader of the largest slave rebellion in American history, Nat Turner, and attorney, Thomas Gray, the night before Nat Turner’s execution.
As announced last week, American Players Theater has once again partnered with PBS Wisconsin to bring the second installment of their “Out of the Woods” series of play readings to a small screen near you. This series focuses on plays written by playwrights of color, and the readings include collaborations with artists and directors of color.
American Players Theatre (APT) is proud to once again partner with PBS Wisconsin to share a new series of “Out of the Woods” play readings, performed and recorded live.
