THE REVOLUTION
Watch on YouTube!

This 20-minute ATC-style high-energy stage production will transport you to The Bill Nunn Black Box Theater where these brave young artists take the stage.

“You will not be able to plug in, turn on and cop out… the revolution will not be televised.” Inspired by these words from Gil Scott-Heron, ATC’s collection of spoken word, song, and dance demands that viewers take the revolution from their screen to the streets. The ATC artists share their experiences as young Black Americans and issue a strong call to action: “You need to listen, then do.”

ACT 33

On January 16th, ATC partnered with Words Without Walls to present a reading of ACT 33; a new play written by the Juvenile Creative Writing Class at the Allegheny County Jail. The reading was followed by a panel discussion.

The play is named for ACT 33 which allows a juvenile defendant to be charged as an adult because the alleged crime meets certain criteria.

This writing project was led by Mike Bennett through Words Without Walls. The reading is directed by Alona Williams.
