Spotlight: A Dramatic Tribute To Trayvon Martin
A coalition of local writers, performers, and theatre groups has come together to explore some difficult issues surrounding the shooting deaths of Trayvon Martin in Sanford and Jordan Davis in Jacksonville.
“The Trayvon Martin Project, Part One: A Tribute” is an evening of six short original plays running October 3rd, 4th, and 5th at Valencia College East Campus Black Box Theatre.
The group Beth Marshall Presents is heading up the collaboration with Penguin Point Productions and Valencia. Two additional productions on the topic are expected from the collaboration over the next year.
Producing Artistic Director Beth Marshall and writer/Penguin Point Producer James Brendlinger sat down with 90.7’s Nicole Creston to talk about the project.
Marshall says she saw social media set ablaze by the events surrounding Trayvon Martin’s shooting, and she knew she wanted to create an outlet for Central Florida’s artistic community – including herself – to be heard.
More information on “The Trayvon Martin Project” is available at the Beth Marshall Presents website.
