72 one-minute plays inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, with participation from artists across the nation. The Every 28 Hours Plays is a national partnership inspired by our current Civil Rights Movement. It focuses on the widely shared and contested statistic that every 28 hours in America, a black person is killed by the police, vigilante, or security guard.
The Praxis Series offers majors in the Department of Theatre Arts as well as the New Paltz campus community an opportunity to develop, explore and stretch their creativity and skills outside of the Mainstage Production Season. Praxis projects provide unique challenges and opportunities that enhance and expand student experiences, rather than duplicate, those provided by the Mainstage shows.
The series is a combination of staged readings and two productions produced with New Paltz Players. This is often a vehicle for student written work, work with a social justice message, work from an underrepresented group, or new work still in development. Often, these projects are directed by guest artists as a way of furthering the experience.
