Donkeysaddle Projects is honored to partner with the GildaPapoose Collective in joining The Kennedy Center’s 17th annual Page-to-Stage festival on Sept. 3rd at 7:30pm in Washington, DC with a staged reading of Jen Marlowe's play “There Is A Field.” This performance will be led by four DC Black mothers who were bailed out of jail by the GildaPapoose Collective as part of the national Black Mama’s Bail Out initiative.
This performance comes out of a year-long community effort to fundraise locally with staged readings of “There Is A Field” across D.C. Following the bail out of six local mothers, several of those women have joined the GildaPapoose Collective’s theater fellowship, which uses performance-based education to highlight the impacts of racism, state violence, and mass incarceration on Palestinian and Black communities.
