Ashland New Plays Festival 2020 Perserverance Callie Kimball Martine Kei Green-Rogers

Perseverance by Callie Kimball
Directed by Martine Kei Green-Rogers

In Perseverance, we meet Perseverance Turner, a Black school teacher, writer, and suffragist, determined to elevate her students above the circumstances in which they were born. One hundred years later, in the same fictional town of Hillcroft, Dawn Davis, a white school teacher, is running for office on a platform of education reform. As the two women’s stories intertwine, the ownership of history takes center stage.

We will be workshopping Perseverance the week of August 4. There will be two offerings open to members and invited guests to view parts of the play during the workshopping stage.
