"Rabbit Summer" is "an intimate and thought-provoking play"



"Tracey Conyer Lee's tense funny...Rabbit Summer addresses complex subjects with a sure hand."

 Chicago Reader 

"Lee...shares an intimate and thought-provoking play. ... Rabbit Summer is a fast-moving tragicomedy that is well-written."


Dear Friend of American Theater Group:  

We're pleased to present Tracey Conyer Lee's riveting Rabbit Summer as our second play reading this Monday, March 7th, at 7pm at the Fellowship Cultural Arts Center. This quickfire tragicomedy navigates the fracture points of a marriage and a friendship. The Faisons are the epitome of Black Love. When family friend, Claire, loses her husband to the quick trigger of a white cop, the Faisons are forced to examine their ideas of fatherhood versus manhood, being Black versus being "blue," and mass shootings versus police brutality. 



A member of ATG's PlayLab program for BIPOC and LGBTQ playwrights, Tracey Conyer Lee has been a finalist for the 2021 Samuel French Off Off Broadway Play Festival, the 2021 Circle Of Confusion Discovery fellowship, the 2019 Lark Playwrights Week, the 2018 Princess Grace Award, the 2016 Doric Wilson Independent Playwright Award and Live & In Color's 2018 Bingham Theatre Camp. She has been a National Black Theatre I AM SOUL playwriting fellow and is a winner of the 2021 Florida Theatricals Discovery musical series. She’s been produced at Redtwist Theatre (Chicago) and in the New York International Fringe Festival (NYC), Ms. Lee received her MFA in Writing for the Stage & Screen as a merit scholar at the New Hampshire Institute of Art.  

We hope you'll join us this Monday, March 7th, for this fascinating, timely work. A Q&A will follow the reading. Tickets are not required, but masks and proof of Covid vaccination are.
