CHARMING PLAY FOR KIDS CELEBRATES DIVERSITY AND IT’S FREE!
PEACEMAKER By David Holman
WHEN: Saturday, October 22, 2 PM; doors open at 1:30 but reservations are required WHERE: George Street Playhouse, 9 Livingston Avenue, New Brunswick TICKETS: Free www.gsponline.org
The Blues and the Reds have lived on either side of the wall for decades. Interactions is forbidden and both communities live in an atmosphere of fear, suspicion, and mistrust. But when Simp, a curious young Red, meets a Blue for the first time, they learn they have a great deal to offer one another and an unexpected friendship blossoms. Peacemaker encourages the audience to participate in a charming parable of our increasingly diverse society, promoting an end to prejudice based on what people look like and where they come from.
The performance is part of the George Street Playhouse Open Stage Series, a number of free performances for the community presented with support from the New Jersey State Bar Foundation.
