Join us for the MLK Day 2011 staged reading of North Star!

Winner of the 1994 Theodore Ward Prize for African American Playwriting, NORTH STAR by Northwestern alumna Gloria Bond Clunie is the dramatic and moving chronicle of the 1960 Greensboro sit-ins. Told in flashbacks, 11-year-old Aurelia wants nothing more than to take part in the civil rights demonstrations alongside her best friend. Facing strong opposition from her family and neighbors, Aurelia embarks on a cross-country trek to fulfill her sense of personal responsibility to equality and play her part in the movement. Directed by Northwestern Theatre Department Chair Rives Collins, NORTH STAR examines the significance of smaller freedoms, the power of an individual and the essence of courage.

Presented by the Theatre and Interpretation Center at Northwestern University as a staged reading for MLK Day 2011, a post-show discussion with cast and creative team members will follow the reading and Miss Clunie will be present for both events.

Please note: The reading will contain adult language and is recommended for ages 11 and up.
