RECLAIM YOUR BODY & SPIRIT
A NEW SEASON CENTERING
HOPE, HEALING, and SELF-CARE
Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture
We're thrilled to announce our 2023-24 Season, which will be helmed by Black female and fem-identifying playwrights presenting new works centered in hope, healing, and self-care. Made possible by LHT’s NEW BLACK VOICES MENTORSHIP PROGRAM, this season will see the development of new works through workshops and play-readings, and culminate in fully-realized staged productions at the Fort Mason Center for Arts & Culture.
“I am filled with excitement, anticipation, and awe at the sheer talent of these powerful Black theater-makers, whose unique voices and vision will soon come roaring to life on our stage,” says Lorraine Hansberry Theatre’s Artistic Director Margo Hall. “The work of sharing our stories and celebrating our history has never been more important. This season, we will carry forward our company’s mission, empower Black creatives, and deliver for our community.”
