Hands Up: 7 Playwrights, 7 Testaments at Friendly House

Friendly House
1737 NW 26th Ave
Portland, Oregon 97210, USA (map)



Hands Up is a powerful set of monologues commissioned by The New Black Fest in the wake of police shootings of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Mo., and John Crawford III in Beavercreek, Ohio, and others.

Seven black playwrights were commissioned to write monologues that explore their feelings about the well-being of black people in a culture of institutional profiling.
