A Virtual VICTORY Returns!

Last month’s online co-presentation of Athol Fugard’s Victory in collaboration with Capital Classics Theatre Company and Racial Justice Provincetown was such a hit, we’re bringing it back with co-presenters Wellfleet Harbor Actors Theater (WHAT) and the Provincetown Film Society on Saturday, March 13 at 7pm.

Again, streaming free-of-charge, this is a live, interactive virtual theater experience! 

In our desire to become the change we want to see, we must come together and find the possibilities together. And indeed, the story of this powerful one-act play by South Africa’s most renowned playwright invites a perfect opportunity for developing a dialogue in its examination of the despair of many young Black citizens who see little prospect of a constructive future.

So simply click on the link below and join us on Sat, Mar 13 at 7pm to experience the Capitol Classics Theatre Company’s amazing performers in Athol Fugard’s Victory, and engage in a conversation of the play’s themes and relevance to our world today.

Athol Fugard’s “Victory”

To honor Black History Month, this Sat, Feb 27th at 7pm, we’re very excited to partner with the Capital Classics Theatre Company of Hartford, CT to present – via ZOOM! – their insightful conversation inspired by Athol Fugard’s one-act play, Victory. This powerful play by South Africa’s most renowned playwright examines the despair many young Black citizens feel when seeing little prospect of a constructive future. Set in New South Africa, following the first free election in 1994, Victory features two adolescents discovered while robbing a home. Their discovery leads to a night of dialogue, revealing the hardships of living in apartheid-created poverty.

Moderated by directors Jan Mason and Geoff Sheehan, the audience will discuss the play’s themes and their relevance and resemblance to our world today in between excerpts from the play as performed by artists from the Capital Classics Theatre Company. Completely free-of-charge, please join us on this thrilling new venture with members of the Racial Justice Coalition of Provincetown this Sat, Feb 27 at 7pm on ZOOM at the link below.
