New Play Initiative: A New Commission by Regina Taylor
Oscars. Emmys. Tonys. Our New Play Initiative playwrights have them. They also work with Carthage students to create new, original plays every year. The ninth installment in Carthage’s New Play Initiative features a newly commissioned work by Golden Globe winner, NAACP Image Award winner Regina Taylor. This new work will follow the life of voting rights activities Fannie Lou Hamer, from her beginnings in abject poverty to the halls of power in Washington D.C. where she testified before congress with Martin Luther King, Jr. This new work is not to be missed!
