Written by local University of the Arts graduate Briana Gause, Discovering Blackness follows Destiny and the students of Prince Washington Institute as they go through an emotional journey to reclaim pride in their black identity. This timely, original piece, led and performed by a fully BIPOC team, captures a piece of the black experience as you may not have seen before! Join the Ritz as we celebrate the voice of one of our region’s most promising young playwrights!
