Ohio City Theatre Project Looks at the Collision of Real Estate Interests and Civil Rights at Mahall’s

Fri 6/15-Sat 6/16 @ 7:30PM

The Ohio City Theatre Project describes itself as a “diverse group of artists whose mission is to pursue excellence in the theater arts and build community through creative innovation, mentoring and neighborhood involvement.”

Come see what they’re about when they present “Bouffons, Bowling & Beer: The Central Concern Project” at Mahall’s 20 Lanes in Lakewood.

The play “Central Concern” looks at the ways in which real estate interests and property values have often been in conflict with civil rights. They used humor, satire and costumes which distorted body shapes “Central Concern” to comment on social issues.

Each of the two evenings will be followed by a talk-back, and Saturday’s show will feature a post-show interactive theater workshop with the cast on theater creation techniques “to create space for them to explore political satire and share their own response to the historic record of segregation in Cleveland.”

The $15 admission includes the show, a drink ticket and one free bowling game.
