We will launch the Two River Rising online benefit reading series by revisiting our 2015 world premiere production Your Blues Ain’t Sweet Like Mine, an explosive and hopeful examination of America's racial divides, in an updated script by Tony Award winner, Ruben Santiago-Hudson.

The Online Benefit Reading Series will be captioned on the Zoom platform.

For this first reading, we will also stream the play on YouTube from Mon, July 27 at 10AM EDT – Thurs, July 30 at 7:00PM EDT. Streaming is free and donations of any amount from viewers will be greatly appreciated.

Benefiting Partner Organization: The Ruben Santiago-Hudson Fine Arts Learning Center is a non-profit affiliate of the Global Concepts Charter School lifting up the lives of neighborhood children in Ruben’s hometown of Lackawanna, NY.

Donation Match

All donations made to Two River Theater in support of the series will be matched by a generous donor, to benefit five organizations with a pressing need due to the impact of systemic racism and COVID-19. Benefiting organizations are identified by the playwrights and directors involved in each reading. All artists will be paid for their involvement in the series.
