Girl Be Heard's MainStage Show 2018
Directed by Kim Sykes
Produced by Jessica Greer Morris
Our democracy is in peril. Girl Be Heard’s 2018 Mainstage show INDIVISIBLE examines the political state of our nation. Over the last year, the most vulnerable communities in the United States have been affected by and infected an epidemic of xenophobia, sexism, and racism. INDIVISIBLE asks the question: What can we do to create a nation that provides liberty and justice for all?
Girl Be Heard’s cast (ages 16 to 23) perform original work based on their own experiences living in America and offer insights and solutions to making the American dream a reality. After each performance, talkbacks will be led by Girl Be Heard Special Advisors and social justice champions.
