A Kid’s Play About Racism

We are incredibly excited to collaborate with 41 regional and children’s theatres across the nation with A Kid’s Play About Racism, a groundbreaking online performance for families that explains what racism is, how to know it when you see and experience it, and ideas for what you can do about it.

This new work will be available for streaming on Broadway On Demand all day on August 1 and 2. And, it can be viewed for FREE!

Adapted from the book by Jelani Memory and directed by award-winning director and Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) artist Khalia Davis, A Kid’s Play About Racism will be brought to life by a Black cast and creative team from across the United States.



Even with the word “kid’s” in the title, this is a piece we all can learn and benefit from.

The Playhouse team is thrilled for this opportunity to bring this world premiere, online theatrical experience to children and families in our community and to support the hard work of our colleagues.
