Essential Theatre Presents Deals with the Devil and Other Reasons to Riot
Ronald O. Davis Acting Studio
2/27/2013 -

The Essential Theatre will present Deals with the Devil and Other Reasons to Riot from February 27 through March 3.  Written by Pearl Cleage and directed by Valencia E. Matthews, this “no-holds-barred” exclusive reader’s theatre piece has nothing to do with Satan as the title may imply.  Cleage does not mince words in her powerful collection of essays that will take the stage.  Bitter, funny and fiercely honest, Cleage‘s writings touch on violence against women, racism, sexual independence, education and politics, and how these issues affect black Americans.  Each performance will take place in the Ronald O. Davis Acting Studio, which seating is limited. This performance contains adult language and themes.
Performances are as follows:
