A New Film Looks at The Social Justice Movement

Arena Stage’s production of “The 51st State”

We are heading to the theater this morning on Taking It to the Streets. Arena Stage has a new production underway at the Mead Center for American Theater. It’s a docudrama called “The 51st State,” inspired by protests and the quest to make DC the 51st state.  My guest is Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi – Playwright for “The 51st State”.

Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater’s latest world premier docudrama is The 51st State.  This is a hyper local 60-minute film created by DC artists thru the voices of 11 residents.  The movie is inspired by protests and the re-ignition of a movement after the death of George Floyd and the quest for creating DC as the 51st state.  For information go here:
