Auditions: SISTERS AND BROTHERS at the inaugural MN Family Fringe

Perspectives Theater Company presents:

"Let's play House! You will be the Brothers and we will be the Sisters!" Inspired by Antigone and the Movement for Black Lives, SISTERS AND BROTHERS uses the tools of children's imaginative play (dress-up clothes, toys, storybooks, games, etc.) to process the trauma of black childhood. We are interested in exploring resonating themes - family, law, order, politics, protest, morality, justice, death, grief - through the safety of play.
