Threads, Weaving the Tapestry of Lawrence Freedom
March 4 @ 7:00 pm - March 5 @ 7:00 pm
- This event has passed.
Join Ric Averill in creating a family history of who founded or found Lawrence. Lawrence’s good, bad, and sometimes ugly relationship to abolition and the founding of our Free State is explored as we play out stories from prehistory to the here and now. Sound ambitious? Alternately comically absurd and deadly serious, actors will breathe life into each portrait of a Lawrence family facing the winds of temperance, women’s suffrage, civil rights, anti-war, women’s rights, the gay rights movements and more — you’ll be part of healing the past to prepare for a new future.
March 4 | 7 pm with a Q & A after the show
March 5 | 2 pm & 7 pm
In-Person or Livestream
Diversity Advisory Board
What is the Threads Diversity Advisory Board?
The Threads Diversity Advisory Board is a broadly representative and deliberative group of community members who discusses matters that concern the new play development of Threads in regards to diversity and inclusion. Members will serve as a sounding board for the production team and cast. The board will help ask important questions as well as consult and help shape the content, ideas, and narrative in and around the production as it relates to the past, present, and future of diversity and history in Lawrence.
