GARY | Indiana University Northwest invites the campus and community to a free presentation of "True Colors," a drama and comedy of the morning after the first black president is re-elected.
The production, written by Vernon Williams and presented by Word of Mouth Productions, is scheduled for 7 p.m., June 6 in the Bruce W. Bergland Auditorium, located in the Savannah Center. Doors open at 6 p.m.
"True Colors" explores the dynamics of prejudice and intolerance through perspectives of those who knowingly and unwittingly perpetuate it as well as those who are affected and/or outraged by it. This one-act play examines themes of diversity, multiculturalism and inclusion. The dialogue ranges from shocking to subtle while remaining provocative throughout. Four characters – two black and two white – enact the roles that provide the theatrical backset on the issue of bigotry in the presentation of six disconnected, powerful vignettes.
The production is presented by the Neal-Marshall Alumni Club of Indiana University.
The Savannah Center is located on the southeast corner of the main campus parking lot at 33rd Avenue and Broadway.
