Hands Up: 7 Playwrights, 7 Testaments premiered in 2016, commissioned by The New Black Fest in the wake of police shootings of Mike Brown in Ferguson and John Crawford III in Beavercreek among many others. Cop Out: Beyond Black, White & Blue premiered in 2018 and reflects the complicated personal and professional experiences and emotions of police officers in our country today, based on interviews with law enforcement personnel.
The Evolve Experience includes monologues from both Hands Up and Cop Out alongside newly added monologues commissioned by the National Center for States Courts. The goal is to stimulate conversation and equip participants with the self-awareness necessary to help overcome a seemingly intractable divide.
