Mission Statement

From August 27 to September 11, The Kiva Company, The Management Co., One Year Lease, Stages 5150, Stone Soup Theatre Arts, and The Subjective Theatre Company will present The UnConvention: An American Theater Festival, featuring six pieces of provocative, political theater.

Description

In addition to the performances, the organizers of The UnConvention have planned roundtable discussions, workshops on political involvement and debates with local candidates. The festival and events will occur before, during, and after the Republican National Convention, taking place August 30 through September 2 at Madison Square Garden, a few short blocks away. Aiming to mobilize young voters, provoke meaningful discussion, and challenge audiences to become more involved, The UnConvention will set up voter registration tables in the lobby of each theater and include election literature in the performance playbills. The UnConvention challenges audiences with timeless conflicts and haunting stories at a time when participation in politics is at its most important and audiences may be examining their political beliefs, economic wants, and social needs. The politically-charged dramas chosen for the festival have the power to inspire hope, motivate change, and spur audiences to become more active citizens.
