triangle productions! presents staged readings

The Lacroute Arts Series at Linfield College and the Department of Theatre and Communication Arts presents performances by Portland's triangle productions!
triangle productions! brings its outreach program, the Brown Paper Bag Series of "anti-lynching" plays, to Linfield College in January. triangle will present two short readings of "Aftermath" and "Blue-Eyed Black Boy" on Monday, January 23, at 7:30 the Marshall Theatre in Ford Hall. An audience discussion, led by Stephanie Mulligan, the actors, and the directors will follow the readings. The performance is free, seating is limited and is first-come, first-served. The doors will open 30 minutes before show time.

For triangle's Brown Paper Bag Series, four one-act plays, chosen out of several dozen "anti-lynching" plays written between 1916 and 1934, are being presented as readings through the spring of 2017 in the Portland Metro area and environs. These plays illuminated the everyday fears of black Americans in the South. In light of recent violent acts against people of color, triangle's collaborating professional artists are committed to sharing these plays in ways that elicit greater understanding of yesterday's events as they relate to today's environment.

In Mary Burrill's 1919 "Aftermath," a young black soldier who has served his country in World War I comes home to rural South Carolina and learns that someone close to him has been lynched by a white mob. This play is presented as a concert reading, directed by RaChelle Schmidt.

In Georgia Douglas Johnson's 1930 one-act, "Blue-Eyed Black Boy," Pauline Waters is alarmed to learn that her son is in danger of being lynched. She enlists the help of her family in an effort to save her son from the gathering mob. This play is presented as a staged reading, directed by Andrea White.

Cast members include Andrea White, RaChelle Schmidt, Don Kenneth Mason, Salim Sanchez, Jocelyn Seid, Kenneth Dembo, and Jerry Foster. Stephanie Mulligan, 2013 Linfield theatre alumna, is the Touring and Outreach Coordinator for triangle productions!.
