Welcoming guests to historic Ford's Theatre for the Oratory Festival.

Host & Post-Show Discussion Facilitator

Great theatre touches the nerves and challenges us to think beyond our normal assumptions. I will partner with you to conduct one or many post-performance discussions, so that your audiences may have an opportunity to unpack the work that you present to them. I've partnered with Anacostia Playhouse for Yellowman and Keith Hamilton Cobb's American Moor, with Theatre Alliance for the rep of For Colored Girls/Word Becomes Flesh, and several other artists and companies. I also facilitate group conversations about race, gender, and social justice.
