SEASON 2016 - 2017
Janet Langhart Cohen's critically acclaimed Anne & Emmett returns to MetroStage for a limited run this summer. If you didn't get a chance to see this powerful and poignant piece, join us in July.
An imaginary conversation between Anne Frank and Emmett Till, both victims of racial intolerance and hatred. Anne is the 15 year old Jewish girl whose diary offered the world a gripping perspective of the Holocaust and touched the hearts of humanity.
Emmett is the 14 year old African American boy whose brutal murder in Mississippi sparked the modern civil rights movement.
An uplifting tribute, a timely reminder and a call to action, "tikkun olam" to repair the world. All ages should see this powerful tribute to two teens who changed the course of history.
"Anne & Emmett was a production of grace and enlightenment... Under the reverent, respectful directorial touch of Thomas W. Jones II, Anne & Emmett is a forceful work of art."
