This year, the Hansberry Project will join the REPRESENT! Multicultural Playwrights’ Festival with a workshop of Valerie Curtis-Newton’s RENT PARTY.
This new draft tackles the story of Bessie Palmer who can’t connect with Ray, her husband, in Heaven until her children get themselves sorted out. She has come back from the dead to get her earthly house in order. Bessie meddles and pushes the entire family to come together to support an important cause – uniting a house divided.
Earlier readings have help shape the story such that this new draft is close to production ready! Join us!
