Event description

Description

Douglas Turner Ward shepherded the idea of a black repertory company from idea to funding, and ultimately established the NEC. He directed close to two-thirds of the productions for the NEC where he served as producer, director, actor, and playwright. This evening will feature the Legacy Leaders of Color Video Project (LLCVP), a mini documentary about Ward, a conversation with Ward, and performance excerpts from NEC alums. Pop-up exhibition available throughout the day

This program is presented in partnership with the Theatre Communications Group (TCG), the national organization for theatre.
