Anna Deavere Smith

October 12, 2018 7:00 PM
Aquinas Hall Theatre

Playwright, actor, and educator Anna Deavere Smith will use her singular brand of theatre to explore issues of community, character, and diversity in America.

The MacArthur Foundation honored Smith with the “Genius” Fellowship for creating “a new form of theatre — a blend of theatrical art, social commentary, journalism, and intimate reverie.” Smith’s Notes from the Field, winner of an Obie Award and the 2017 Nortel Award for Outstanding Solo Show, looks at the School-to-Prison Pipeline and injustice and inequality in low-income communities.
