Description: 

 

Strings was inspired by the deaths of Trayvon Martin and other nameless black men. Writer and director Charles Curtis notes, "I wrote this piece to give voice to the scores of men of color gunned down in the street. Young men like Trayvon, Tamir, Akai and others with so much to live for, and so much left to do. For the black and brown boys and girls that live in fear of the system created to protect them. A system only concerned in protecting the status quo. A system created for them to fail."  This play will be performed live.
