      This impressionistic, episodic play by UMD alumna Kia Corthron creates a voice for Black women in today’s society, portraying them as multidimensional, empowered and demanding of respect. Rather than seeing them thrive unrealistically against all odds, we see them crack and break, ultimately supporting each other to build agency and resistance.

      Revolt
      Written & Directed by Walker Green
      Music Direction by Liezel Werner

      Revolt is a monologue-based historical play that pays homage to young activists, protestors and revolutionaries who were harmed or killed for their activism. A mosaic of stories represents the perspectives of youth who were involved in the Israel/Palestine conflict, resistance to Nazi Germany, the Dakota Access Pipeline at Standing Rock, Mississippi’s Civil Rights movement and more. This play encourages political activism among students and meaningful engagement in today’s politics.
