The Play

When Lives Matter is an original play set in two realities that explores politics, race, and police brutality.

When Lives Matter is a reflection of the times were in. Echoing the voices of generations struggling to find their place in society. When Lives Matter allows the audience to hear both sides of the story; giving the opportunity to take an honest look into the hearts and minds of the privileged, oppressed, and those in power.

Opening night of the play is January 12, 2017 at The Lounge Theater in Los Angeles, CA. The play will run for two weekends on the following dates in January: 13 ,14, 20, 21, and 22.

Nina Simone once said, “An artist’s duty, as far as I’m concerned, is to reflect the times.” Art can express and expand on an idea and reach more people than discussions can alone.

Using this play as a catalyst, we hope the story ignites healthy discussions. Because…

WHEN LIVES MATTER, voices are heard, people are understood, equality is a reality.

WHEN LIVES MATTER, every life, no matter the race, ethnicity, religion, or political affiliation, is treated with the same regard as any other.
