City Theatre's original play, The Rivers Don't Know, will have several performances in September. Many of Literacy Pittsburgh's staff and students were involved in the making of the play and shared their experiences to help shape the story. The play depicts tales of immigrants and refugees in Pittsburgh from the 1940s to the present day.
City Theatre, in partnership with the Pittsburgh Playhouse, will hold an Artisan Marketplace before each performance. They are aiming to offer attendees the chance to purchase items and food from Pittsburgh-based vendors and vendors who represent communities such as those depicted in the play.
If you or someone you know would like to participate in the Artisan Marketplace, find more information about sign-up here. Any questions can be directed towards Monteze Freeland at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are NO FEES for using the space, but slots and days will be given on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please help us in spreading the word, and consider buying tickets to see The Rivers Don't Know!
