Theater Alliance presents

The Raid

by Idris Goodwin

Directed by Colin Hovde

Feb 8 – Mar 18, 2018

Would you die for your beliefs? Is it better to work within the system to change it or take up arms against the system to destroy it?

Idris Goodwin’s The Raid is a fabulation of a debate between two American icons: White abolitionist John Brown and Black abolitionist and social reformer Frederick Douglass. On the eve of Brown’s raid on the federal armory in Harpers Ferry, these men argue the merits of violence and pacifism, order and chaos, and possibility of a nation free of the scourge of slavery. The Raid examines the difference between being an ally and an accomplice, the implications of race in social protest, and the limits of radicalism in the age of #Resistance.
