A New Play About Race at Trenton's Passage Theatre
To have a conversation about race, a theater might be a better setting than, say, Facebook. That’s the position of David White, co-creator with June Ballinger of "Profiles: A Play and Symposium" now at Passage Theatre in Trenton. "Profiles" takes up where "Trenton Lights," an interview-based play about the city produced in 2010, left off. With this new production, Passage turns its attention to “the elephant in the room” – race. Ballinger and White tell producer Susan Wallner why they chose to create the play using “real words,” and what they've learned since "Trenton Lights." "Profiles" is on stage through February 23 only, with community conversations after every performance.
