TimeLine Theatre to hold panel disussion: "Race in America"

TimeLine Theatre announces “Race in America: A Discussion With No Walls,” a panel discussion open to the public on Tuesday, December 2, 2008, from 6 – 8 pm. The event will be held at the International House at the University of Chicago (map). Admission is free but reservations are encouraged; call (773) 281-8463 x24.

A House With No Walls is a provocative and innovative play that addresses not only race relations in this country, but also the challenges that come from trying to even discuss race relations,” said TimeLine Artistic Director PJ Powers. “Honestly, it’s not a conversation we’ve had enough at TimeLine, and we’re very much looking forward to engaging in that dialogue with a diverse audience from around Chicago at this special event.”

The discussion panel will include Dr. Harvette Grey, Dr. Eric Arnesen, Melissa Barton, Dr. Valerie Johnson and Dawn Turner Trice.

“A Discussion With No Walls” is inspired by and presented in conjunction with TimeLine Theatre’s Chicago premiere of Thomas Gibbons’ A House With No Walls, now playing through December 21.
