Theatre has always been a way to bring a community together and in today’s age of polarization it is a way to bring diverse ideas together. Within the local Dayton community there are theatre companies like The Human Race Theatre who try to bring the community together through their shows. In Cincinnati there is the Cincinnati Black Theatre Company and the Cincinnati Black Theatre Artists Collective; they bring the community together through prioritizing the needs of Black theatre artists. This call for change to address the inequity in racial disparities is happening all throughout American theatre and has come to the forefront through movements like Dear White American Theatre. My poster will demonstrate how this organizing and telling the stories of those marginalized will allow local communities to come together and change the theatre industry for the better.
