The Negroes Are Congregating is a contemporary piece that leaves political correctness at the door while delving into the psyche of generational internalized racism. Delivered through a fusion of spoken word, satire, and soulful dialect, audiences will enter a realm of private truths and leave with an understanding of what it means to be Black, proud, and ready.
Please prepare to audition with (1) prepared monologue or song/rap acapella of your choosing plus (1) provided slide which will be provided when audition slots are confirmed.
Please send a resume and headshot to PIECE OF MINE Arts & Theatre Passe Muraille. We will contact you if you are selected to audition.
