Theater Festival in Black and White: Multicultural Edition


The Theater Festival in Black and White: Multicultural Edition shone a light on Pittsburgh’s diverse communities by soliciting plays from an array of playwrights from various cultural backgrounds, all of whom have lived in the Pittsburgh area for at least two years at some point. It ran February 14-28 2015.

The scripts that were selected received a fully staged production during the festival. The festival concluded with an awards ceremony where Pittsburgh Playwrights recognized the talent on display during the festival.
