Playwrights Local is proud to pair with Twelve Literary and Performing Arts Incubator on a staged reading of a new play by Mary E. Weems, Ph.D.!

“Talkin’ on a Twenty Dolla Bill” opens with a simple premise: what if Harriet Tubman and President Andrew Jackson — the two faces on the front and back of the new $20 dollar bill — confronted each other in a conversation about race and power? Written by award-winning poet, playwright, and essayist Dr. Mary E. Weems, “Talkin’ on a Twenty Dolla Bill” is a play about slavery, money, and corruption where history merges with imagination.

Starring India Nicole Burton as Harriet Tubman and Eric Schmiedl as President Andrew Jackson, this staged reading is directed by Michael Oatman.

Join us for this journey into the outrageous!

* If you can’t make it on the 16th, catch another performance on Friday, July 15th at 7:30 p.m. at Twelve Literary and Performing Arts Incubator, 325 E. 156th St. 44110.
