She Like Girls

The 1st presentation of Yendor Theatre Company’s new play reading. In partnership with the @newarklibrary…a reading of She Like Girls by Chisa Hutchinson @chisabh as part of #NewarkPride. The play was read before a full house of about 70 people July 3rd, 6pm, at the Main Library Downtown! 🎭

She Likes Girls “depicts two inner-city high school girls who fall in love in a dangerously homophobic climate.” Hutchinson, who grew up in Newark, NJ, stated, “The immediate trigger for this play was the fatal stabbing of a 15-year old lesbian in Newark …but the play isn’t about murder…it’s more about the urban community, the urban family, and how they respond to homosexuality. People need to hear a voice of love and acceptance every now and then or else they’ll just habituate the hate. Or worse.” #RepresentationMatters and we thank Chisa for her prolific work & look forward to sharing this piece with our community. ✊🏿 (Yendor)
