florissant & canfield
By Kristiana Rae Colón
Directed by Derrick Sanders

At the intersection of tear gas and teddy bear memorials, a loose alliance of neighbors in Ferguson, MO find themselves hurled into the national spotlight. Documenting the wild, messy birth of a civil rights renaissance in a digital age and the vanguard of the #BlackLivesMatter movement, Colón’s drama is timely, powerful and real.

Directed by Jeff Award winner and UIC theatre faculty member Derrick Sanders. Playwright Kristiana Rae Colón is a poet, playwright, actor, educator, Cave Canem Fellow and executive director of the #LetUsBreathe Collective.
