by Tanya Barfield

directed by Adam Greenfield

Each tribute includes a public meet/greet reception following the reading.

Before Midnight (working title)
book and lyrics by Tanya Barfield
music and lyrics by Clark Suprynowicz
directed by Patricia McGregor

It's 1967. Race riots ignite in America's cities. A charismatic band of revolutionaries throws gas on the fire, hoping a better America will rise from the ashes. A young black man arrives in town to join the movement. An FBI agent is given an assignment he can’t stomach. A swaggering outlaw is surveilled. And every Saturday, a roomful of kids need their pancake breakfast.

Tanya Barfield

Resident playwright Tanya Barfield will work with director Leigh Silverman on an untitled new play.
