Rachel: A Play in Three Acts
Theater Ensemble of Color rings in 2018 with Rachel, a three-act play about an educated and sensitive young woman who comes to understanding the realities of American racism. Written in 1916 by the Boston-born journalist, teacher, playwright and poet, Angelina Weld Grimké, one of the first women of color to have a play publicly performed.
Rachel will be performed at the Portland Stage Studio Theater, 25A Forest Avenue, in Portland. This historic play is brought to life for two wonderful unique weekends of family-friendly theater. The show runs January 11, through January 21, 2018. Show times are Thursday through Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2 pm. Tickets are $12-20.
