Join us for a staged reading of stories of Detroiters and their experiences during the landmark year of 2020. Talented actors and playwrights share stories of how the pandemic, the murder of George Floyd, and other 2020 events affected people in varying circumstances. How did people cope? What did they do? What have we learned? The performance is followed by a talkback session with the playwrights.

The Extra Mile Playwrights Theatre is a group of Detroit-area playwrights, actors, directors and producers dedicated to showcasing local theatre. "We at Extra Mile Playwrights Theatre believe that stories, especially plays, have the power to transform and ignite the spirits of people and communities,” says Ann Eskridge, co-founder of EMPT (www.extramilept.com).

This event is presented by the Michigan Unitarian Universalist Social Justice Network (MUUSJN), a statewide coalition of Unitarian Universalist congregations focused on creating a more just and caring world (www.uujustice.org).

Birmingham Unitarian Church is accessible for people using mobility devices. Ample parking is available at no charge in its adjacent lot. Doors open at 3:30 p.m., and masks are suggested (www.bucmi.org). The event will also be live streamed via Zoom.
