This Version Instead: Arts Garage in Delray Beach Resurrects Live Local Theatre with BUNKER
Resurrects Live Local Theatre with
A Timely and Thought-Provoking One Act Play
Saturday, October 24 at 7 pm
(Delray Beach, FL – September 21, 2020) Just as Arts Garage brought back live musical performance to Delray Beach with Music At Home: Live From Arts Garage, a room-rocking soul, funk and fusion concert that was both live and live-streamed, the venue is now launching Theatre At Home: Live From Arts Garage with a live and simultaneously virtual performance of BUNKER, a one act play written by Sharonda Eccentrich Richardson, directed by Jonathan David Kelly, and starring Shanteala Mash. The timely and thought-provoking production will have one performance on Saturday, October 24, at 7 pm.
BUNKER dramatizes the story of Khalan and his mother as she finds herself becoming the very thing from which she is trying to protect him. This story of love reveals how wars may unintentionally start at home and the journey back to peace. It asks the demanding question: "How do you raise a Black Boy with no manual?"
"As an artist, I am committed to creating work that speaks to the underserved communities I come from," says director Kelly. "Not only do I use the arts as a way to spark dialogue for social change, but also as an instrument for healing. Before I create new work, I make sure to engage with community members through focus groups and open forum discussions, so that I have an accurate depiction of their individual social issues."
"BUNKER explores an important concern facing many families today," says Marjorie Waldo, the venue's President & CEO. "Arts Garage celebrates community and believes that the Arts can be truly transformative by starting conversations and bringing people together. This amazing play is a perfect opportunity to do exactly that, whether you decide to watch it live-streamed from your home or with us live in Delray Beach. "
