Those who missed Daniel Beaty's last performance of Through the Night at the Riverside Church Theatre last Sunday can catch extended showings in the first week of June. Back by popular demand, four more performances have been added: Sunday, June 6th, at 3:00 PM and 7:30 PM, Monday, June 7th at 7:30 PM and Tuesday June 8th at 7:30 PM.
Through the Night addresses subjects that concern the African-American community specifically and all people generally. In the play, characters face a wide range of issues that include family relationships, fatherhood, economic stability, health and wellness, incarceration, youth violence, activism, education, sexuality and religion.
