Join us for a powerful new play inspired by stories of local community members that centered loss, grief, healing, and connection.  This world premiere invites the audience onto a BIPOC farming cooperative to explore the relationship of grief, community, and wellness. Fertile Grounds shares stories of land stewards, healers, and people in our community seeking meaningful avenues for healing and health. Community members star in the cast: Yumi Asakura, Sherron Brown, Sabetha Hersini, Della Keahna, Misko Keahna Uran, Antonisha Owens, Felicia Whatley, and Francine Wilson Jasper; and are supported by a powerful production team, including: Kassandra Melendez-Ramirez and Yusef Scott-Wetherbee (Stage Management), Carrell Johnson (costumes), RJ Lavine (props), Megan Omohundro (choreography), Nate Richardson (sound), and Jason Simms (scenic).

Additional Information:

Audience advisory: Please note that this play contains mature themes of death of a loved one and grief, as well as exploration of one’s relationship to or disconnection from land.

The production will run approximately two hours with intermission.
