Suffer the Children: A COCAwrites Workshop and Playwright’s Corner Speaker (Virtual & In-Person)

Playwright’s Corner Speaker: Hear from St. Louis artists Regina Taylor and Mariah Richardson as they discuss the tools and power of playwrights as well as the importance of new work that inspires and lead us to a brighter path.
This conversation is followed by Suffer the Children.
COCAwrites offers a unique chance to engage with a play in process through a special reading of Suffer the Children, written by St. Louis playwright Mariah Richardson.
Suffer the Children is part of a series of plays about Delilah, a young girl exploring questions of community and coming-of-age in St. Louis. This dramatic piece looks at issues of race, white supremacy, gun violence, and immigration, highlighting the real fears that children, and adults, face today. The play asks St. Louis audiences to lean in and listen to the words and seek restoration through the ideas of our young people.
Join us as student artists perform for both a socially-distanced live audience and an at-home audience via livestream.
