Fountain Theatre, Fountain Avenue, Los Angeles, CA, USA




Event Description

In response to current events and in solidarity with #BlackLivesMatter, The Fountain Theatre will present a one-time, live online reading of Stephen Sachs’ critically acclaimed, award-winning stage adaptation of Claudia Rankine’s Citizen: An American Lyric. This compelling portrait of racism in America will stream live on Sunday, June 7 at 5 p.m. PT on Facebook, Twitter, the Fountain’s Youtube channel, and Zoom (zoom ID #959 8241 0639).

Citizen: An American Lyric is a stage adaptation of Rankine’s National Book Critics Circle award-winning book of poetry. In this intensely provocative and unapologetic rumination on racial aggression, seemingly everyday acts of racism are scrutinized as part of an uncompromising testimony of “living while Black” in America — from the shooting of Trayvon Martin, to the tennis career of Serena Williams to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
