Projects in Development

Labyrinth Productions Presents:
The Secrets of Brown and White
A Staged Reading of a new play
Written by
Bridget Brown
Directed by Angelisa Gillyard https://www.angelisa.net/

Executive Producer: Judith Clinton

Inspired by the true story of Bridget Killeen Brown's family, The Secrets of Brown and White peels back the conversation “of race, shame, family, and courage.” It is a timely American conversation that is an open, honest, and surprisingly funny examination of race, racism, belonging, and what it means to be family.

First written and developed at a The Way of the Labyrinth playwrighting retreats, this staged reading of the new play is an exciting step forward to this play growing up and becoming a full fledged production, up on its feet some time in the near future. This staged reading with the extraordinarily talented Angelisa Gillyard directing has been a long time coming, and has tremendous support which is made possible in part by an Artist Fellowship Grant from the Connecticut Office of the Arts. The Executive Producer, Judith Clinton resides in Providence, RI, giving it a Rhode Island connection. She is the Co-Executive Director of RI Theatre Makers Roundtable jcinton14@msn.com

There will be two performances - one at 7pm on Saturday July 20th and one at 2:00 pm on Sunday July 21. The performances will take place at the Clinton Connecticut Town Hall Auditorium. 54 East Main Street, Clinton CT. You can register for a seat at this website. Admission is a donation pay what you can at the theatre.
