Parking was FREE at Northwestern. Walk out the way you drove into the lot, turn right before the first building is a ramp and stairs. Both theaters are in that building. That route is the least amount of walking.

Description

Identity. Unemployment. Communication. Dreams. Race. Politics. Technology. From plays to video shorts to graphic narratives to songs, celebrated Hollywood actress and writer Regina Taylor has partnered with Northwestern University students and faculty members to create a fearless, one-weekend-only festival of original works. Through a number of different performances, more than 50 members of the Northwestern community have come together in a personal, provocative and challenging examination of who we are as individuals, where America has been, where it is going and how we can own our voices to make a difference in the world today.

Two of the 10-minute-plays series presented at the festival are Dreams (an exploration of The American Dream, shifting the dreamscape as the reality of our times is revealed) and ID (an exploration of the constructs of identity, dissecting and reconstructing issues of race, gender and sexuality).
