The People with the Trees in Their Chest

Staged Reading Friday, March 22 / 8 PM


Vibrant Colors Express a Powerful Story!

Last fall Grand Vision and playwright Shawn Christopher Lovell Nabors were paired through the Arts Council for Long Beach and the California Arts Council to produce Nabor’s brand new play, The People with the Trees in Their Chest.

This week we proudly unveil the stunning artwork designed specifically for the play by Loisse Ledres of geezloisse studios.

The play follows an African American family from Brooklyn as they struggle to break the curse of poor health that has marked their family for generations.

Be among the first to hear the new work. All are welcome at the Staged Reading on Friday, March 22 / 8:00 PM.


This activity is funded in part by the California Arts Council, a state agency.
