The National Black Box Performing Arts Festival

This festival is a three-day event (April 7-9) promoting cultural equity by showcasing the works of African-American and Latino artists. The Festival highlights artistically excellent works of emerging, underexposed, and underappreciated playwrights, dancers, filmmakers, spoken word artists, and vocal groups. Various Memphis institutions are participating. On April 8, the McCoy Theatre will host an all-day page-to-stage workshop, involving writers from the region’s HBCUs and local performers.

The Rhodes Cycle

devised by Dave Mason

An old-ish new staging of the Bible, using pageant wagons, masks, original music, and ingenuity. Invoking Europe's High Middle Ages and the postmodern Mid-South, this episodic re-playing represents a grand collaboration of communities, artists, and performers. This one-night performance makes the campus its stage.

Free and open to the public.

Note: Start time is 6:57 p.m.

In case of rain, the production will move from Oak Alley to Hardie Auditorium.

The Unencumbered

by Elizabeth Hersh

directed by Joy Brooke Fairfield

In a near future where technology has rendered almost every dream achievable, seven men creep hopefully towards immortality, their fragile bodies dependent on armies of care-workers. The Immortals are the stuff of myth, but this story is not about them. It is about three of the women who keep them alive, and what they gain and lose in doing it.
