Travisville by Soul Rep Theatre

September 17, 2022 - 02:00 pm

Soul Rep Theatre is proud to present excerpts from their upcoming full production Travisville, written by Dallas native, William Jackson Harper.

THE STORY: In 1960s Texas, one city has so far avoided the tumult of the Civil Rights movement. Through the efforts of an alliance of black church leaders, a wary peace has been maintained with the city’s white mayor and citizens. But when the mayor partners with a private developer to gentrify the black neighborhood and uproot its residents, and a movement organizer from Atlanta comes to town, the Minister’s Alliance will need to choose between the non-confrontational status quo and standing up for the interests of their community—and weathering the risks resistance incurs.

This production is held in collaboration with Big D Reads.

This program is made possible thanks to the generous support of the Friends of the Dallas Public Library.
