BETTER THAN YOU is People's Theatre Project's new play conceived, created and performed by the Uptown Action Community Actors. Better Than You features two short plays performed by 13 Spanish and English-speaking adult community members. Each play takes a unique look at moments of Latino characters facing racial injustice. The plots are taken directly from the stories shared by the group and reflect pressing issues people of color face everyday. Following each of the rehearsed plays, a Community-brainstorming session will take place where audience members are invited onstage to experiment with alternative solutions to the challenges portrayed in the plays.
Conceived, written and performed by the Uptown Action community actors:
Mary Anderson, Carmen Barbosa, Willie Dean, Kim Goldfarb, Cinthia Henriquez, Ramona Luna, Peter Nuñez, Carolina Pichardo, Yolanny Rodriguez, Yajaira Tejada, Rishauna Zumberg
