October 2-25, 2020: “Chasing Shakespeare” A Comedy play by Paola Hornbuckle, directed by Jennie Hamilton. Dr. Robert Bellamy, an academic heavy-weight, but mediocre playwright is hired to take over as head of the Sojourner Truth University Drama Department, located in Washington DC. It is a traditionally black, all-girls college that has recently become co- educational. He is a traditionalist and classicist and fundamentally opposed to feminist and minority theatre for which the drama department is known. He believes that contemporary drama is besieged by the literary genre “Irony’ and wants to create a theatrical renaissance and plays with Shakespearean traits and values. Running Fridays & Saturdays at 8pm., and Sundays at 3pm. $20.00 General, $17.00 for Seniors, Students, Military, Disabled, and Groups of 10 or more attending the same performance.*Your Tickets will be ready for pick up at Community Actors Theatre Box Office half an hour before each performance.
