Sexual harassment. Media fatigue.  Hurricane Maria's devastation of Puerto Rico.  Confederate icons. Charlottesville violence.  Deciding to run for elected office.

These are the "ripped from the headlines" topics that will be explored in DRT's "Continuing the Conversation" final Main Stage production of the season, premiering Thursday, April 26.

A follow-up to Dreamcatcher's Evening of Short Plays in Response to the Election, Continuing the Conversation is an opportunity to check in with the community on what's important to us in real time. Written on themes chosen by the writers in the months prior to the production, Continuing the Conversation will be focused on the interaction between the stories we tell in the theatre and the lives we are living. It's a chance to connect artists to audience in an immediate way, with several discussions following the performances throughout the run.
