On Monday and Tuesday, April 10 and 11, the young thespians of McKinney Middle School and Yellow Springs High School will present two reprise performances of their fall show, “Five Scripts Toward an Anti-Racist Tomorrow,” at the Foundry Theater at Antioch College. Each show begins at 7 p.m.

“Five Scripts Toward an Anti-Racist Tomorrow” was originally mounted last November, and incorporates four scripts by playwright Idris Goodwin and one by G. Riley Mills and Prince Roc. Together, the five scripts interweave to tell stories that highlight different aspects of racial issues and the experiences of Black Americans.

The performances are being held in preparation for the cast’s upcoming performance of the show at the Ohio Educators Theater Association state conference.
