Melanated Mondays October

Melanated Mondays

Every 3rd Monday at The Commons.

BRTW presents Melanated Mondays, bringing a collection of new works by the hottest up-and-coming Black writers in NYC. Every 3rd Monday, BRTW presents a series of 10-15 minute plays and screenplays around a new theme each month. Stay after the show to join in a community roundtable conversation with the audience, artists, and theme partners to discuss how that month’s theme or genre can provide a new perspective on social justice. It is completely free to attend, but if you have the means, we do recommend a $15 donation with admission.
